My kids are allowed to play gadget games only during semester holidays. But, for this semester holidays, instead of giving them the usual gadgets, I gave them the following books.
The kids enjoyed it and they ended up doing the following.
- Merry go round model
- stitching woolen mermaid dress
- shell painting
- paper-folding matchbox
- some 3d paper foldings
- glitter art
- doll dress using grains
- dressing up sheep using cotton balls
- coloured rice to be used in rainstick percussion instrument
- rainstick percussion instrument – this was really a tedious task to punch holes using needle and inserting toothpick to it and then painting it. The end result gives such a melodious sound.
Hats off to my girls. Looking forward to more such interesting works from them during next holidays too. 🙂
