This project is really close to my heart…we never thought that it will turn out to be so great.
The seed for same project was sown by one of my multi-talented blogger friend Rashmie Jaaju who is great inspiration for me whom I met through online parenting site Parentree.She organized an event called Forest fiesta last month to celebrate the World Environment week. So while reading about the same on her blog I thought in my mind ‘I will surely participate in the same’.
Now thinking process started for the same, I thought make something which is meaningful and we can relate same with the theme ‘Forest’. So I and my daughter Khwaish took out treasure which includes all colors and craft material. Suddenly my eye got stuck on discarded sketch pens….i knew what I will do with this material.
So let’s get started…First we get started sticked the discarded sketch pens in line, then Khwaish pasted some coloured pastas on the board(painted long back),cloth holder in the shape of butterfly(green) and Sun (broken piece of toy)…so everything on the board.

|Pasted all discarded sketch pens,pasta,sun and one cloth holder clip(green |
and black) on chart.
Now time to start little coloring for the same…Ok u won’t believe me but yes to give sky blue color we took discard sketch refill and dipped it in water then started …we used some tempra paints to add little more brightness to sky. When khwaish holding brush and coloring ….u can always feel joy on her face.
|Sky is all set..|
Since tree/forest all about green color…we cut glace paper into different shapes and size .Made leaves with the same .We had one spare wild animal chart in our treasure so…cut out five animal lion,leopard,tiger,giraffe and bear and pasted same on the board.
Now to add more beauty to trees…put some fruits.

Someday back I had night safari at my Kerala trip which gave me idea to segregate the painting into night and day view…in night view we had fireflies all over the sky.

Friends my whole idea to write the details of craft was initiate and urges to recycle the things which we consider waste sometime. I guess we can teach our kids little bit about recycling the things…At least this can be little step to avoid deforestation.
Make the best out of waste!!
