Holi Pichkari Craft (Water Gun Craft)

If you have read about India, you have surely heard of two big festivals - Diwali - the festival of lights and Holi - the festival of colours. It is not too presumptuous to guess that Holi is every Indian kid's favourite festival.

Holi allows little kids (and adults) to unleash their inner child, let go of all rules and have the time of their life with colours, balloons and water gun (pichkari). The most adorable and critical, being the pichkari, which comes in innumerable shapes and forms and becomes the weapon of choice for use against parents, uncle, aunties, and their little friends.

So, on the occasion of Holi 2018, we thought it did be apt to create a pichkari craft, so our little kid can learn about this wonderful colourful festival.

As they say - Don't mind, let it be bygone, it's Holi (Bura na maano, Holi hai).

Happy crafting!

HOW TO MAKE WATER GUN?


SUPPLIES



BEHIND THE SCENE STEPS


1. Paint the paper roll cardboard tube and let it dry.



2. While the tube is drying, cut out a circle of 1.5 in diameter from yellow cardstock paper. Punch a hole in the middle of the circle. This is to make the base of the water gun.



3. Take a yellow straw and trim its bent part (roughly half the length).


4. Insert the straw through the hole of the yellow circular base as shown below.



5. Snip lots of little tabs into the bottom of one end of the cardboard tube and press them inside. This is to ensure that we can comfortably glue the base and move the straw handle in/out.


6. Glue the base on the snipped end of the tube keeping the bent end of the straw inside.


7. Decorate the cardboard tube with washi tape.




8. Cut another circle (3.5 in diameter) from yellow cardstock paper to make the cone shape top of the water gun.


9. Glue the cone to the top of the tube. Trim the cone tip a little bit.



10. Glue a pom-pom on the straw handle. And you bright and colorful pichkari is ready for Holi.
