Use Old Newspaper .....

Friday, September 19, 2008

We were trying to use old news paper and here is what we came up with............

Take a 2"wide and 10cm long paper strip.
Start from one of the edge and roll it like a cigar. Roll about 2cm paper this way. 
You have cigar and a tail end of the paper. press the upper end of the paper from where paper tail starts. You have lower end free to hold in your hands. 
start folding the paper backwards and at the same time circumambulating the cigar strip till you finish using 95% of the paper strip. The tail end is just wound around the bottom part of the cigar where you are holding and firmly secured with a tape. 
Rose is ready. You can see the Rose stuck to the multipurpose holder in the below picture which gives you a better look from side.
Akash has just stuck news paper around a used up biscuit box. He enjoyed making it and sticking a rose to it :)

The doll above is made of news paper yarn. You can see the method of making newspaper yarn/thread here
The yarn is glued in a circular form on a thick cardborad discs. The thick card board was from cornflakes box. Akash has cut them into circles. I glued the paper thread on the discs. We finished it by decorating with wool which I already had at home.

Lantern and Lantern Festival

Sunday, September 14, 2008

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival, is a popular East Asian tradition of Chinese origin, dating back over 3,000 years to moon worship in China's Shang Dynasty that spread to neighbouring cultures like Japan. It was first called Mid-Autumn festival in the Zhou Dynasty. In Malaysia and Singapore, it is also referred to as the Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival. The Chinese Lantern Festival is held on the 15 day of the first lunar month.

China Town is decked up with beautiful lanterns and lamps. Moon Cakes are sold everywhere. Today is lantern festival too along with Ananthapadmanabha swamy vrata :D so posting both together. Lantern was made of used bisleri bottle. Akash's childcare teachers are very creative. They helped each child of the center to make one lantern each. It was a DIY project. Take a close look and you can create one at home yourself.

This lantern goes to Vani's CAN ART EVENT

Baker Boy

Thursday, July 31, 2008

We all love to watch Khana Khazana cookery show by Sanjeev Kapoor! So he thinks only Men can be Chef and cooking is done by them ( obv... my hubs is not happy with his thought!) ....so he thinks himself as 'Khana Khazana' and helps(?) me out ..so he went upon being a baker !

Photo deleted...will be back soon...

See..what he baked! his own set of cookies ....one animal/per day he took them for his snack box and proudly announced to his teacher that he baked them :0

Akash - Our focus in life

he will be 6yrs in October....time flies people say and I believe in it.. 6yrs! We cannot imagine a world without him. He is our focus. Everything we do, from shopping to life's most important decisions he is there .....We go to buy vegetables..R says don't buy too many chillies and make the dish 'hot' Akash may not eat it..or shall we go to XYZ place for holidays? Does this place have enough attractions to keep Akash busy? Should we move back to India? Will Akash be able to cope with the competitive environment in schools..?so he is there everywhere..he does not know it.
half the time when I am at home I am either with him or in kitchen and when I wish to sit down with my hubby to talk Akash will sure say"why you always want to talk to daddy?" ufff...see dad's face for the reaction! Poor 'R' he has to wait for his turn to come again or else we date during lunch time....

Akash is our cloud, a cloud which brought us shower of love with him. He is our focus!
