Eco-Friendly Ganesh - Clay Pillaiyar

Hello friends,

On my blog today I am sharing a cute Ganesh! This Pillaiyar (Ganeshji) was designed especially for kids, so that they can make their own homemade Ganesh for Ganesh Chathurthy. This can be made both with clay or flour dough or with a mix of turmeric and flour, all this made at home.

This method requires very less experience with clay and it starts by making balls from clay for each of the body parts of Ganesh, (3 big balls - head, body & trunk, 6 small balls - 2 ears, 2 hands, 2 legs) and finally 1 different colour ball for the crown. 


You can also decorate the crown with stones or button. Further the extra things needed are white clay for laddoo, a white thread, and tooth picks for tusk.

We did for our little ones during our zoom session and they loved it to bits. 

Here is a pic of my Pillaiyar made with turmeric and flour. The eyes are made with pepper. Nothing here is harmful or non-recyclable. Makes me very happy. :)

An eco-friendly Pillaiyar. 
Lets be more responsible and Lets make the world green!!

Mixed media Art Journal

Hello peeps,

So here is my second attempt at Art journalling. I tried to take a different concept and colours, but more of less I feel the colours are the same as my first attempt at mixed media. Here also I have used the same materials as the previous project.

I did make a lot of mistakes with the techniques, but every mistake makes it more interesting. I loved playing with the colours. Hope you like it too. Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Interactive Clock Craft Activity - Telling Time for Kids

 Hi there everyone,

Today I have an interesting activity to share with you. It's an interactive clock which means kids can move the hands of the clock and show the right time. I did this model for my son for his Maths exhibition at school. 

Here like you can see, there is a pouch at the bottom of this model. It contains simple questions for kids, they have to solve it and find the right time and set the time in the Clock. It was interesting activity and kids loved it a lot. They kept coming back to our stall.

The model is made up of a card board base (carton box) and easily available materials. I am listing it down for your reference.

1. Carton box

2. pattern paper

3. Foam sheets (corrugated)

4. Foam numbers from Itsy Bitsy

5. Card board hands

6. Stickers, etc

I also added a stand for the model, so that it can be displayed on the counter. Hope you were able to draw some inspiration from this, and hope it was useful. Thank you and see you soon again.
