We tried making bows and arrows out of cardboard. Although they did not last very long, we had GREAT FUN making them, especially with the boys in the group.

For bows: Cardboard carton (package kind), duct tape, strong rubber bands and poster paints(optional).
For arrows: Card stock to roll into sticks, cardboard bits for arrow heads and glue gun or PVA glue.
For spears: One chart paper sheet ( A1), poster /acrylic paints, PVA glue and cardboard arrow head cutout.

 The quality of the cardboard really matters as it tends to bend or break easily after stringing it with the rubber bands.

Happy creating!

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!
