Make an easy flower vase

We will need an empty container eg: toothpaste, foil cardboard carton/box. The shapes may vary but that does not matter. We used an empty potato chips container which is cylindrical and an empty foil box, both cut into halves. Second item used is a corrugated cardboard sheet -the ones that come with packing or can be purchased. Finally we painted and decorated them to our heart's content :)

Here is how it goes:

Beautiful and colourful macaw

The first topic chosen as we returned to our groups this July was 'The scarlet macaw'
 Gorgeously colourful and an amazingly large parrot, the 'Scarlet Macaw' turned out to be a fascinating subject to explore! We did a drawing - colouring - painting session, based on the images viewed and facts explored and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Here is the step by step scarlet macaw illustration:


Viewing actual photographs of the macaw helped the children decide the background effects, the shades of colours on the feathers, the profile and the details.

Emphasis on the tough beak, claws and the rainforest backdrop are really amazing!

Some of them decided to write down the facts as well, although it was optional :)

This is a glimpse of one of the sheets I could capture before it gets into their folders!

A great response to an interesting topic last week!
Happy creating!
