These Ganesh masks were made using large paper plates.
Cut out holes for eyes using a craft knife. Then, cut out trunk and ear shapes from card and staple in position. Make holes either side of the plate for elastic.
Paint the whole mask in one bright colour and then paint Indian inspired patterns onto the mask using gold, silver and brightly coloured paints. Once dry, further decoration can be added using sequins, glitter and metallic pens.
The children also created these rather sweet Indian elephants using air drying clay. They decorated them with buttons, beads, sequins and ribbon (which can be pinned in place) before the clay had dried.
This Year 4 display features work that children produced during a topic on India. They created these watercolour paintings of India’s national bird, the peacock. They also produced the forest backdrop by drawing plants with wax candles onto a large roll of paper. They then painted watercolours over the top using large brushes and drew on top of this with oil pastels when the paint was both wet and dry.
