4 Simple Art and Craft Projects for Kids (2)

Here is part 2 of the 4 Simple Art and Craft Projects that my kids did in the past.  I hope you can also find time to do them with your kids. It will help them develop their creativity, their motor skills as well as their patience while having some fun.

The first project is a beautiful craft project made by Emmuel last school year using a latch-hook kit. Their class teacher actually bought the kit for them. Though the finished art project looks like it's a difficult to do, it really isn't because of the gadget latch hook used. I'm amazed that my 10-year old boy was enthusiastic in doing this. The finished craft can be used as a table mat, a pillow case or framed as a hang-on decor.

Craft Using Latch-Hook
I remember doing something like this long ago as a school project, too. But we used an old sack, strips of cloth (retaso), and then instead of using a latch-hook, we used a ball pen cap. The strips of cloth are inserted into and out of the sack and tied with a knot. We do this repeatedly until the whole rectangular sack is covered. We get to choose our own designs. It's not as beautiful as the latch-hook project but it came up with similar end product.

The second and third art projects were done by Janel.  It's quite obvious that these were used as projects for Halloween. The first is a spider web with glitters.  The project used a black cartolina drawn with spider web using chalk.  Then, the kids used glitter glue following the lines of the web and allowed it to dry.

The next is a pumpkin with glitters craft. The materials included a template of a pumpkin and cut outs of eyes, nose and mouth using black cartolina prepared by their teacher. The kids colored the pumpkin (Janel is in Nursery and has not yet polished her coloring skill), glued the eyes, nose and mouth onto the pumpkin. The last step was to use glitter glue to line the mouth of the pumpkin.

During the Halloween party in their school last year, I saw that they had similar art projects used as Halloween decor.

The last simple craft project is a toilet paper roll craft. This is not part of the art projects they did in school but my two sons enjoy doing this craft when they were 4-6 years old. 

Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Here are the steps in making this toilet paper roll craft:
1.  First, prepare the materials needed: Toilet paper roll, crayons or color pencils or pens, glue, scissor, pattern picture which can be printed from DLTK-kids.
2.  Second, color the picture pattern.
3.  Third, cut out the pictures / patterns.
4.  Fourth, glue the different cut-outs on the toilet paper roll in the proper positions.
5.  Lastly, let the glue dry and then play with your finished art craft.

I hope you will enjoy these art and craft projects with your kids.

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
