iPhoneography // India Activities

This month’s Bright Minds theme is ‘Around the World’, which I was super excited about after designing and running our school’s ‘Passport to Adventure’ themed camp a few years ago.

For this week’s focus country, India, my Crafty Kids got to work on a few different projects… First up, we focused on the national bird through creating these darling little paper plate peacocks from I Heart Crafty Things…  This is Miss G’s peacock.

And here are some of the others. I love how differently they all turned out despite the same set of materials and instructions.

Next, we created these very fancy jewelled bangles {aka paper roll cuffs} from Happy Hooligans.  Aren’t they pretty?

Afterwards, the munchkins had the opportunity to try painting with traditional Indian spices.  {You can read about how we make our spice paints here.}

While the colours turned out beautifully {especially the chili and curry ones}, Miss G was most interested in sniffing the paints as she applied them to her paper.  The colours, the textures, the scents – it certainly makes for a full-on sensory experience!


Next week, our journey around the world brings us to one of our favourites – Japan!  Can’t wait.


Are you following us on Facebook and Instagram yet?

We’d love to have you!

  1. What an awesome theme to go “around the world”! I love all of these activities. Painting with spices…What a genius idea! Thanks so much for linking back to me on the peacock craft. The children’s artwork turned out darling! :)
