My love for Angry Birds Continues

I simply love the simplicity of Angry Birds.

I love that they are cute and can be transformed to any art project.

So I decided to transfer my old mason jars/pasta sauce jars to these cute Angry Bird candle holders.

Paint the inside of the mason jar with the color of your choice

Cut foam into circles and the other required shapes.

Stick the foam shapes with E-6000 on the glass.

With a floral wire, make a loop around the neck of the jar.

Place some sand in the bottom of the jar and gently put the tea light in the center.  You can also place a few river rocks around the candle for added stability.

These were perfect in our backyard in the summer time.

I will tweak them a little for Halloween 😉

Lovingly,

Maithili.

Love Angry Birds?

Being a ‘mental health therapist’ by profession, I have some issues when it comes to saying Angry Birds.

I know .. I know how it goes.. I am reading way into it.  But, (again another notorious word), its a strong emotion for those cute little things!

On the other hand, I seriously, I love them.

I am glad Angry Birds are in this i-world,”  said my My Little Handsome Boy one day.

Hmm.. My thinking brain started working on high speed.

I decided to make a cute little project for my 5 and 6 year old students.  I thought of starting the class with their fine finger muscles first by involving lots of squishing and mushing of polymer clay.   As they progressed, I thought I will add some fun stuff for the little ones to move their whole body and play using their gross motor skills.

Here is the flyer for my program for 6 weeks.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

And here comes my cherry on the top!

While doing these projects, I especially enjoy discussing my favorite topic:  EMOTIONS!!!

We discuss a lot of nonverbal behaviors:

-how emotions look on the face,

-what wrinkles pressed together make a particular expression appear,

-how to make the expression disappear

-and lastly, what emotion is expressed through all those wrinkles.

Once all the hard work was done by these tiny fingers, I transformed these to cute colorful keychains.

Look at their mighty angry expressions!!

All of these are so unique and alike in themselves!


A Big Hello to my ArtastiK Creators!!

Welcome to ArtastiK Creations!!

This is my first page and my first time to be this nervous and happy anxious about a blog in the whole wide world!!!

You will find a lot of arts and craft ideas to do with your children on this blog.   Once in a while I will throw in some blogs that are meant for kids above the age of 25.
