When playing with a mirror children watch their faces and choose a colours of lips, eyes and hair that fit them (a doppelganger). Then they glue all the elements to an empty roll of toilet paper which should be stamped at one end. Eyes, lips are cut from self-adhesive paper, and hair from cut strip of blotting paper.
We cut out a flower template (height circa 60cm) from large, rigid paperboard. We decorate petals with slips of coloured paper. A narrow strip of colour crepe we fold many times and glue it around a centre of a flower. Then we glue on it a circle with a drawing which presents parents. We paint a stem and leaves green or glue on them slips of green paper.
A teacher dissolves in a bowl two portions of flour and salt with a little amount of water to create a mouldable salty material. Then pupils mould a heart shape (or cut with a form) and paint it red. The next activity is to decorate its edges with pistachio nuts rinds, and finally fix a colour button in the middle.
To make a decorative box for gifts, children need an empty roll of toilet paper and slightly flatten it. Then pupils bend its ends inside and put a candy or a gift inside such a formed box. Now, one can stick a decorative napkin around it (it is so called Decoupage technique). Finally, children or a tutor bind a gift with a colour ribbon.
We cut out a background of a coloured paper for our frame in size of the CD, then we cut a hole for a picture in the centre, in this case oval one, and glue to a CD. We cut blotting paper of 4cm width and form “threads” of it which we later glue to the background of a frame. We form leaves and a stem form “threads”, we cut out leaves.
To make a brooch children trace with a felt-tip pen figures from templates on the decorative foam. The next step is to cut out figures from them and glue them together-in order from the largest to the smallest. A decorative button is stuck at the top of a brooch at the end. Small cuts from the back are to drag out a safety pin through them (preferably with a tutor’s help).
