DECORATIVE KEYCHAINS USING CRAFT FOAM

These keychains had these label holders that turned out handy. Children could write a little message along with the names.



Glitter foam cutouts were used for the the decorative hearts. We used a glue gun to stick the pieces together.

























Then used a 5 inch long strip of foam to attach the heart pendant.


























Pva glue can also be used to stick the decorative bits together.

Making mobile phones using cardboard

With a keen interest to recycle and reuse cardboard, we collect a lot of cardboard boxes and enjoy making a whole lot of things throughout the year. We don't seem to be able to post all of them in spite of all the reminders we get from the parents and our well wishers! Nevertheless we plan to work on sharing more frequently!

Recently I came across this lovely fun idea on pinterest : A little cardboard mobile phone
Since we were making things for Valentines Day, I wondered if everyone would like to make a cardboard mobile phone as a gift or a fun pretend play idea :)

I handed them the cardboard cut outs, poster paints, black markers and the results were simply AMAZING!!!!!
Most of the children used poster paints and black markers for writing and outlining their designs while a few of them tried using wax crayons -as seen on the third one from the top.










The children also made psps and ipods!!! And some of them requested for bigger cardboard pieces to make ipads and more!!! Whats more…

I want to make a rocket today

'Today I'm going to make a rocket' said, Shrehan and he sat down ready to start making one!!! Although we were about to continue with the on going fairyland project (during the last week of January), we decided to find some material digging into our recyclable stuff.

He settled down with a long cardboard roll and needed help with the sticking!
He chose colors and painted it meticulously!  Look at the flag colored trails he has used at the bottom!! He explains that he remembered the trails of colored smoke during the spectacular flypast on the Republic day!

It looks GREAT! Isn't it?! Amazing work for a 5+ year old!!

 We used a long cardboard roll (foil paper cardboard roll), some card stock, tri-color crepe paper for the smoke trails, paints and glue.



Enjoy creating things you like :)
