AWESOME CHRISTMAS WONDERLAND

This past week I decided that my students should cut out simple pine trees and make a pine tree forest or a wonderland for the bulletin board. I remember viewing a gorgeous vintage Christmas card of decorated trees long back. Everybody liked the idea and we wanted to make them all colourful and Christmassy. Since most of them wanted to make as many trees as possible they wanted me to help in cutting them. So I cut them in about three sizes and soon we had a big collection of colourful Christmas trees!

After sorting out the ones for the group activity, we decided to make mini forests.
We chose blue sheets of paper for the base and added various cutouts of mountains and foliage before pasting the trees plus we also made some transformable ones! Here are some of them to show you.

 To let them decide the position of the sun or the trees, I applied glue to the lower portion of the mountain and the foliage cutouts so it was easy to shift the trees around before pasting them.

Anish was happy to paste them all.

Seyeon wanted to shift them and paste them later at home because he made many trees.
So that was an awesome topic and we had much fun.
Now we have another week of winter activities and a holiday party to plan!

Thanks for viewing.

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!
