DIY Project- Make your own igloo

Last week, Gy was learning about types of homes as part of the EVS curriculum in school and the weekend project was to make different types of homes. She was asked to make an igloo. Generally, I outsource all 'artsy' work to my creative husband , but this time we decided I could make a go at it.

This was my first joint attempt with Gy, at a DIY project. And, it was actually fun to get down and dirty:)

We decided to combine it into a 'best out of waste' project.

Step-by-Step :

    Here is the final picture and Gy was so happy with it! With Dusshera around the corner, we hope we can use it as part of the Navarathri Golu set-up, provided it comes back home this week!
