DIY STRETCHY BEADED BRACELETS

We had this lovely bracelet making class with 8 to 11 year old children. We used pipe cleaners with beads for the easier ones. We used the elastic strings and beads for the stretchy ones, which can be on the not super easy level. The elastic string ones took much longer to make and turned out really pretty. So they were made again as gifts especially for mother's day!


It is about two years and I still have mine all stretchy and beautiful! It was good to experiment and string beads in different ways to finally make them! It was great fun!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.



I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!
