Craft and Projects : Kids Projects

Yesterday I completed my son's project on 'underground water : A 3D model' . And for it, by the grace of God , all material was present at home.In no time all the required material was assembled and now the  cutting,gluing,colouring,drawing,pasting...i.e.the fun part. Anindy also  helped .He  cried ,he panted and puffed his anger at things such as  'it will never be on time' ,Other being 'it is not loooking good enough' And another  that' I'm not able to do much' !

All these tantrums ...that too after HE forgot all about the project while his school was shut for 2 days and remembering only at 8:30 pm when I was sleepy...So, Thanks to him and his carelessness, i hit the bed only when it was 11:45 !

 But one help he definitely did. he was wide awake with me and along with whining he was giving valueable to use MY  stuff...
I used an old plastic sugar jar for the well which made him mad as it was stinky! So first he rinsed it thouroughly with  FACEWASH (mine)  , then instead of using a dishcloth ,dried it with my apron (again mine!)  It was odd how his creative ideas were concentrating around MY stuff  only (though he begged from his sister's toys one BEAUTIFUL pink and blue tiniest  toy bucket but for me he was not asking for anything leave the begging part..he was simply ordering.So he Did some help.The final draft looked like this...

The well with the bucket
This  is not the only one.Like all mothers,I like helping ,sometimes doing projects for both of my kids. Some other DIY projects we did are ...
