A Flying Carpet and a Jinn

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.

A Bellicose King – Knight

Bellicose King – KnightTo create a militant king-knight children take first an empty roll of toilet paper and stick blotting paper to it. First, stick with yellow one of its ends so blotting paper cover a piece which is  outside and inside a roll. Then one should bend a papered edge so its yellow end begins to resemble a king’s crown (children bend with a finger in the direction of an edge of a yellow papered part).

Finally, we bend paper to form a heel of a shoe.
