PENCIL POUCHES MADE OF CRAFT FOAM

Today we have added this wonderful pencil pouch to our easy gift making ideas.
We haven't been using much of craft foam these days and I've been waiting to post this for almost a year. The pouches are really easy to make and look pretty neat!
It was a GREAT activity to engage my 8 to 10 year olds.
We had so much fun whilst everyone chose their foam sheets and designed their clasps .

We will need: Craft foam sheets - plain or printed, glue gun, sharpies, duct tape and velcro fasteners



The A4 size foam sheet was folded to form this envelope with enough pocket space for pencils.. Once folded it was secured with duct tape to hold the shape. Alternately all four sides of the foam sheet can be lined with tape before folding. Before sticking the velcro fasteners we glued a piece of foam to stop the foam from ripping off easily.

They all turned out so pretty! The clasp ideas were FANTASTIC! The hearts clasp design will look great for V'day gift!


I think these pouches or wallets make lovely gifts for various occasions. We had pokemons, cute kittens, bunnies and a whole lot of them! I LOVED them all :)



So that was a great craft project this week. Thanks for visiting us and for your comments. Much appreciated :)

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!
