    Kids Activities

    Colourful Streamers

    A simple way to make shining, colourful streamers.


    The things you need:
    1. Sheets of thin, coloured paper
    2. Scissors

    Step 1: Make three folds in the paper as shown in the figure.

    Step 2: Make slits at regular intervals all along the length of the paper (L1) without cutting the opposite length (L2).


    Step 3: Now repeat the same procedure making slits from L2 towards L1. Again, be sure that L1 does not get cut.

    Gently open the pattern. A broad streamer will flow before your eyes.


    If you want to make thin streamers then just make a single fold. More the folds, broader the streamer.

    Re: Kids Activities

    Paper chains


    Kids Activities-43_4.gif


    All you need is:

    1. Crepe paper or Glossy paper.
    2. Scissors.
    3. Colours.
    4. Adhesive.

    Kids Activities-43_1.gif
    Step 1: Take a sheet of paper, nine inches square. Fold it diagonally into two. You will get a triangle like the one in the illustration.

    Step 2: With the help of scissors, make cuts as shown in the figure. Remember to keep two things in mind:

    • The cuts should not reach from one side to the other.
    • You should make cuts in alternate directions.

    Step 3: Now, open the sheet out flat and make a second one exactly like it but of a different colour.

    Step 4: Stick the two sheets together by dabbing some adhesive on the corners.

    Step 5: Now, gently draw out the paper by pulling at the centre of both sides.

    You will have a nice chain. Make a dozen of these and you can hang them all over.

    Egg Carton Flowers

    The things you need:

    1. An empty egg carton
    2. Poster colours
    3. Brushes
    4. Glue
    5. Scissors
    6. Thick straws

    Kids Activities-kids-activities-1.gif

    Step 1: Cut one egg cup from the carton.

    Step 2: Make six to four cuts on the broad part of the cup.

    Kids Activities-kids-activities-2.gif

    Step 3: Bend and curl the cuts in different ways. Your flower petals are ready and you can make a budding flower or a flower in full bloom by the way you arrange the 'petals'.

    Step 4: Stick a thick straw to the bottom of the cup and the flower stem is ready. You could even use a piece of wire for the stem.

    Step 5: Now give this flower the shades of colour that you want. The choice is yours - whether you want to give a bunch of roses or a mixed bouquet!

    Painting Pots

    Kids Activities-kids-activities-6.gif
    All you need is:

    1. Poster paints.
    2. Paint brush.

    Kids Activities-kids-activities4.gif
    Step 1: Pick up a pot and remove any dust from it using a soft cloth or a brush.

    Step 2: If you have earthern pots, give them a coating of colour that you think would match with the colour of your walls.

    Step 3: Let this base colour dry. Now you can paint a variety of patterns on top to decorate your pots.

    If your pots are cemented and polished, you can directly make patterns on them. It's quite interesting and at the same time colourful and attractive too.
