4 Simple Art and Craft Projects for Kids

This is my entry to Techie She’s Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 9. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Lainy of Lainy’s Musings.

The past few days have been very busy. The first quarterly exams of the kids are due this week and next week and there are some projects that they have to finish and submit.  I have been helping them in their projects and preparing them for the exams. In addition, I am completing some online freelancing jobs so I did not really have enough time to do any musing for writing a blog post.

Anyway, while sorting through tons of photos that Kristel needs for her project, I came across these photos of the craft and art projects that my kids did last school year. Let me just share these with you.

The first two are Janel's art work. These are her water color paintings. Don't ask me what they are. I don't know either but I really like the color.  Can you tell me what they look like? She likes to paint after school and I like some of the outcomes of her water color painting effort.

The next photo is Kristel's bean mosaic project. Their teacher gave them a picture of a fish and asked them to glue different types of beans (mungbean, soybeans, black beans and lima beans?) onto the picture. It looks pretty.

The next two are Emmuel's project. The first two also uses water color plus other mediums. In the first project, they used thread. I think what they did was to dip a string in water color, place it on the paper while holding one end of the string, press another paper on top then pull the string. It made this artistic water color effect. I remember having done this while in school as well.

String and Water Color Painting
This one is called fruit and vegetable printing. They cut up different fruits and vegetables, make artistic cuts with the help of a grown-up, then dip it in water color and stamp it onto the paper. Emmuel made nice designs using carrots, "ampalaya" (bitter gourd) and potatoes.  If you want to personalize wrapping papers, using water color can definitely be a good material to use.

I have other photos of their projects but I will share them on another post.

I love the string and water color painting. It looks like done by a pro.

Have a nice day.
Those are stunning works of art! Makes it hard to believe that kids made them. My daughter gets bored at home, so that's a good activity to keep her busy.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice. Image taken from When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
