The theme for this month is the “Thermocol”.  This includes crafts made with thermocol balls, thermocol sheet, thermocol cups, thermocol plates.. basically anything thermocol. Cut it, paint it, stack it and have fun with it.
Tips: To paint on thermocol, mix 1/2 fevicol & 1/2 paint.

  1. Stick to the theme for the month.

  5. Resize the pics that you send / upload to a max of 1024×768.
  6. Each pic should have a watermark to your blog or atleast your (or ur child’s name) in case you don’t have a blog. Use paintbrush / picasa to add text at the right bottom. A readble fontsize should be fine.
  7. Each pic should have the age of the child. If its an adult who is making it, please put age- Adult(Suitable for a kid aged X to make) . It makes it easier to judge. Use paintbrush / picasa to add text at the right bottom.

  9. I absolutely don’t like putting up pics of any child on my blog. Any entry henceforth that has a child’s face / pic will be sent back for blurring. You can however send it with the face blurred.  Use gaussian blur / simply use paint brush to cover the face.
