Skyline Cardboard Tube Craft

Every time we think about a new craft idea, we first try to recycle stuff at home before heading to buy new craft supplies. If you love to recycle like us, do check out our collection of recycled crafts.

Cardboard tube rolls make great craft supplies - so versatile and easily available at home. Toilet paper roll crafts for kids are so fun and easy to make with preschool and kindergarten kids.

So, here is sharing with you a cool skyline made using cardboard tubes. We made this craft last year after our visit to the city famed for its bold architecture, Chicago. Fascinated and inspired by Chicago's majestic skyline with some iconic skyscrapers (John Hancock Center & Willis Tower), we made this skyline craft.

Warli art ideas for kids

Warli painting is an ancient tribal art (10th century AD) originated in Maharashtra (India). These paintings use a set of basic geometric shapes: a circle, a triangle, and a square. These shapes are symbolic of different elements of nature.

It's amazing to see how they depict their tribal life through some basic patterns. My daughter enjoyed learning these warli patterns with Malini and was proud to show off her work to everyone.

This could be more formal in the form of teacher appreciation days or casual when you feel like it. Teachers work very hard to take care of our children and they deserve our unreserved appreciation.

Ninja Father's Day Card for Kids

My husband loves everything, Ninja. He has watched all episodes and read the manga for over 5 - 7 Japanese shounen series over the last 10 - 12 years. He says that Ninja’s are not just about fighting. They are about self-discipline and protecting the innocent, which is a great model for kids to learn about.

So, this year on his birthday, we decided to surprise him by making a ninja card! Our daughter then wrote a lovely message inside in her own inimitable style to wish her Papa Ninja. This will make an adorable father's day craft too.
