Ndebele painted houses

bing image -
First graders looked at the beautiful houses of the African village of Ndebele as inspiration for building a 3-D paper sculpture.  We patterned the papers with black paint, stamps, and markers before folding and assembling the forms.  As much as I would love displaying these in front of an African sunset backdrop, I didn't have storage space at this time of year with many other 3-D crafts going on.  I will have to try these again next year and plan better storage! 


  1. I see I'm not the only one who loves their houses! My 4th and 5th graders loved learning about their architecture last fall.

  2. Very cool. These look great!
