arvindguptatoys's Channel Our core belief is that children learn by doing - by touching, feeling, cutting, sticking -- pulling things apart, putting things together. We believe that this hands-on science helps them relate to curriculum and get conceptual understanding. We believe this will revolutionize the way children learn. A child lighting up a LED with a Syringe Generator is more likely to light up his village tomorrow. Our approach is inclusive. Ours is the most cost effective outreach program in the world, with cost of 15 paisa per person (0.2 cents per person). Our Goal We want to design science and math activities to comprehensively cover the whole curriculum.

Supplies needed: Crafts for Kids: Christmas cracker templates By Kate on December 10, 2011 I can’t imagine tucking into a Christmas dinner without pulling a cracker first. I love the naff hats, the cringe-worthy jokes (and just the tradition of it all). Crackers are so easy to make…and if you don’t fancy making some for the table you can make some miniature ones to hang in the tree. They also make really cool gift boxes. I’ve put some templates together if you wanna try. Here’s how: 1) Download the pdf and print onto thin card. 3) Score along all the dotted lines. 5) Fold along all the vertical lines. 6) Fold along horizontal lines as shown. 7) Bring ends together and join using a glue stick or double sided tape. 8) Tie one end with a length of cotton/ribbon/string* 9) Wrap a gift/sweets/hat/joke/confetti* in some tissue paper 10) Pop inside cracker and tie the other end with cotton/ribbon/string* * delete where appropriate!! Job done!! Hope all your Christmas or Hanukkah crafts/preparations/plans are coming along a treat.

Paper gems (+ templates) This has got to be one of my favourite projects to date…which is a good job because I nearly broke my brain putting the templates together!! I’m not so good at maths and figuring out angles (my lovely Mum is a retired maths teacher so I should know better!). By the way this project is quite fiddly so more aimed at grown-ups or older kids. My paper gems were very influenced by these wonderful crayons (via Deborah’s Pinterest board). You can use these paper gems as hanging decorations (for your Christmas tree) or you can incorporate them into a mobile or garland. If you spray them lightly on one side they look very pretty and a bit more crystal-like! If you love crystals and gems as much as I do then check out these cool projects: Home-made rock candyHome grown geodes Edited to add: Check out this great advent calendar idea using my paper gems. Kids craft coming up next week…I absolutely promise this time! I’ve been a total slacker on email lately…but intend to catch up over the next week. !!
Handwriting for Kids - Handwrite A different order of teaching a child to write the alphabet. Most children are taught to write the alphabet in chronological order, ABC…etc. But try this different approach. But before you begin go to the "UPPERCASE animated alphabet" to show the child the characters being formed. First, practice writing characters which contain vertical and horizontal strokes, the E, F, H, I, L and T. Second, move on to characters formed only by diagonal strokes, the V, W, and X. Third, practice the characters having vertical and diagonal strokes only, the K, M, N and Y. Fouth, practice the character having horizontal and a diagonal stroke only, the A, and Z. Fifth, practice the simplest of characters formed by circular strokes, the C and O. Sixth, do the G and Q. Seventh, Now comes the combination of vertical and curves strokes, the B, D, J, P, and U. Eighth, the R. Finally, the S. You can find more alphabet sheets for additional practice.
