EASY AND FUN DUSSEHRA AND DIWALI ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN

MAKING BOWS AND ARROWS OUT OF CARDBOARD>> HERE >>
The boys had fun making bows, arrows and spears out of cardboard with easy to find supplies.



Please note that some of the arrow heads and the spear look pointy and sharp. They were made by children 9 to 11 years. However they were only used for display and not for play.



We also made swords and shields as shown below.



INDIAN FOLK PAINTING AND DRAWING >> HERE >>
Children can try making some Madhubani paintings during the Dussehra break. We will try to post step by step Madhubani making ideas. So do check back with us.

Here is our creation of Goddess Durga. Children can make their own version of the artwork.


Ravana is easy to draw. After a brief story telling and discussion, we created a step by step version of Ravana and here is the completed drawing below. 
Feel free to download and use the Ravana image for colouring. Do post your coloured image on  FB  or email them to us.


Try making these easy rangolis on newspaper. Cut newspaper into any shape and size as required. Cut out some easy shapes like petals, triangles etc., out of glosy, metallic and colourful paper. Try various layouts and patterns before sticking them. 



Try decorating them in rows or as garlands across the wall. Either ways they look gorgeous!

Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
