Beautiful Origami Art

Recently we received some beautiful origami art gifts from Japan. They were from one of our student's grandmother and she had planned to send them for Christmas! There was a beautiful wreath made of pasta with lovely embellishments, little origami Santas and three gorgeous boxes one inside the other! All the children in the group were delighted to add them to our art collections and displays. The amount of inspiration and curiosity they brought in, is totally adorable! Here are the pictures we would love to share and will surely try to make some of our own as well!

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!

FREE-HAND DRAWING - why it is good for children

Free hand drawing is one of the activities which a parent can incorporate into their child's daily routine for the development of hand-eye coordination, which is itself crucial for the overall physical development of the child and is the basis for other creative activities like painting, craft making, sculpture, and more. In most cases, children take to drawing naturally and enjoy creating on their own. Always nice to keep papers, sketch books and pencils handy for them, even while travelling!

Some toys are designed to assist hand-eye coordination development, like fitting things together(one can use simple unbreakable cups and bowls too), jigsaw puzzles and so on.
In many instances we do come across students who panic because they are unable to complete their drawing related projects or usually end up doing them with much dissatisfaction.

Practice in free hand drawing does make children confident with their drawing projects and school assignment related artworks as they grow up.…
