In order to create a paper puppet clown children first have to cut out a longitudinal piece of coloured paper and make an accordion plate of it. Then they stick such “a body” to a sheet of paper, and at its end they attach a head and a cap previously cut out. The last activity is to glue straight hands in the middle of a puppet clown figure. When pressed a figure “springs” upwards and downwards. A work perfectly suits for further play (children can play theatre, invent dialogues, a puppet clown may dance). A figure comes alive in hands of our pupils and it is undoubtedly an asset of this simple toy.

Flying Carpet and a JinnFirst children cut out a rectangular shape from creased paper. The next activity is to smear on it colourful plasticine – patterned shapes, imitating Persian embroidery will be created on a magic blanket. Then pupils are to bend slightly an end of paperboard. A magic item look as if it has just taken wings. The next step is to mould from plasticine a jinn figure, an Arabian ghost who controls a carpet.

Cinderella’s ShoeWe cut out a shoe along a template from a coloured technical pad, then we decorate it (it may be coloured, painted, ornamented with different elements of glossy pad or pieces of lace, flowers created from blotting paper, ribbon, decorative buttons, etc.). Finally, we bend paper to form a heel of a shoe.
