To keep up with the Christmas spirit students were given a cut out of Santa which they decorated with different waste material. They used material such as bits of glitter paper, cotton etc to complete the collage. This was a wonderful activity for children where they could showcase their immense creativity, imagination and presentation skills. Each one thoroughly enjoyed the activity as they were able to put together stunning collages.
Boys brought Christmas tree and the decoration material like cotton balls, wrapped gifts, bells, Santa Claus, stickers, colorful strings etc. from home. Some of them bought the cutout of the Christmas tree and they coloured and decorated it beautifully.

First the tub was filled with water and then a few drops of oil paint of 2-3 colours were dropped in it. The students were asked to blow on the colours to help spread them on the water and then using a paint brush it was mixed to give patterns.
