Let’s learn basic shapes today and along the way make a dump truck out of it 😀

Dump truck

I cut several basic shapes such as rectangle, square and circle. We also shredded some crepe paper.

Use a glue stick to stick the shapes

Paste the shapes onto an art block

Spread some glue on the top part of the dump truck

Stick the confetti (shredded crepe paper) on and you are done 😀

It has been quite some time we did not touch on origami. If not for all the emails I’ve been getting requesting for origami, it might have just slipped out of my mind. I’ve just been too engrossed with paper art, foams and painting lately 😛 Sorry peeps 😀

Ok, let’s get started. Let’s make an origami fox today 🙂

Remember back in our ol’ school days we used to fold this boat? I was reminded of this boat by my students. Let’s see how she fold this boat.
Fold an a4 paper into half.
Fold the sides to the middle line.
Both sides.
Fold the four corners up to the middle.
And again for all four corners.
Like this.
Fold a small flip at both sides.
The trickiest part is to turn the boat inside out. Once you got that mastered, you’ll get your origami boat!
The kids and their boat. Unfortunately, there was no boat for Ethan that day. But he is still happy though! ^^
