If your kids are bored with staying at home, then you can engage them in many creative activities that will make them productive and keep them occupied. Art Roomis a popular interactive art show on ZEE5. In the show, host and artist, Lalon, makes art fun as he teaches young children to make innovative art with very easy steps and accessible materials.
Take a look at his first episode here:
Here are some of the best DIY ideas from the show:
Lalon here makes a tiny beautiful looking gift bucket from materials that are very easily available. This could be an amazing idea for a birthday gift as well. With a strip of ribbon which can also be obtained from any coloured paper, he makes the bow. With a star-shaped paper punch, he pastes the stars on the bucket.
Balloon Flower Vase
Art and craft can be exciting even with the materials that are available at home. A flower vase is used in every household and now you can make your own DIY flower vase. All you need is a balloon, multi-coloured papers, a pair of scissors and a flexible thin wire.
This lovely artwork seems tough but is definitely not as Lalon breaks down each and every step of the process very simply, and that ultimately turns into a beautiful lotus.
Ice Cream Stick Animals
Lalon gives importance to handmade gifts and to resue and recycle. Make adorable miniature animals out of readily available ice cream sticks that you would otherwise throw away.
Monster Tissue Box
With quirk clothes and a fun space to create art in, Lalon engages the kids with simple explanations. The monster tissue box is a simple tissue box that can be made into a scary-looking monster mouth with the help of some simple tricks.
Clothes For Birds
Make tiny sized clothes for cork birds with the help of some available materials. These can also be used for decorating your home or your room.
Yak From Ladakh
Make a yak with the help of some wool and cardboard boxes. It will almost give you the appearance of a real Yak. You can create many such animals with wool readily available at home.
Origami Hand Puppet
Make an origami hand puppet with super simple and easy steps. An adorable puppet that can be used as a toy as well.
All you need is a foam sheet and blue paper to make clouds with raindrops attached to them. Hang them up in your room with either a ray of sunshine or a beautiful rainbow emerging out of it!
Guitar from tissue paper box
Fancy an instrument? Make one with a tissue paper box near you. This might turn out to be a little tricky for kids, but you can always take help from your parents or siblings and get cracking on it.
