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 :)

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.…
