We cut out squares with dimensions of 2-2.5cm from coloured materials, and from a sheet of copy paper – a balloon shape including a basket (we created a balloon when drawing an outline of a small plate). The rest is up to children – whose task is to paper a balloon canopy and finally to stick a basket.
A locomotive is cut out from wallpaper leavings. Carriages are made form square cosmetic pads, circles – black Bristol board, carriages connections may be from straw, a half of a toothpick or a half of cosmetic stick without cotton wool. All elements are stuck with Vicol type glue on the grey paper. A sky and a soil are drawn with a pastel pencil.
We cut tights on both sides (a stitching and a puller). We put balls in different sizes formed from crumpled aluminium foil into a created tunnel. We tie a knot between each ball (knots should be also tied before the first and after the last ball). The ends of tights we cut into three pieces and we braid them. To make additional decorations one may bind decorative ribbons or bands.
A teacher mould a white tooth from plasticine to which he/she attaches a piece of black plasticine. Children’s task is to remove a black decay with a toothpick. Then pupils fill a created hole with a filling made from white plasticine.
When making binoculars, children are to stick coloured paper in two colours around rolls of toilet paper. Then a tutor joins both eye glasses using a stapler. The next activity is also done by a tutor who makes holes on both sides of binoculars, drags out a lace through them and makes knots at its ends (to make him kept by binoculars). Binoculars are excellent to further play.
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 one wants to prepare paper puppets, first children take a coloured paper pad and fold it into an accordion pleat. We stick the upper part with a tape, and unfold the lower one. A girl has already a dress. In a boy we cut a lower part of an accordion pleat to its half and we form shoes. At its back we stick a toothpick. We draw mouths on a technical pad and cut them out.
Children draw an apple shape on the sheet of paperboard. They paint with Vicol glue a centre of it and turn a sheet on a tray filled with sugar pressing a little bit. When it dries out, a work is ready to painting. One must choose colours suitable for a given fruit. On a surface prepared in this way, paint dissolves wonderfully and colour joint together.
Children throw balls made of orange blotting paper to a large transparent bag. Top is created from a cut strip of green blotting paper. When a bag is filled up, a teacher puts “a green top” on a top part and binds a carrot with a green ribbon. Finally, one can glue eyes and a mouth cut out from self-adhesive coloured paper.
We smear a plastic bottle (in my case a bottle of 1.5 L cut in half = two pineapples) with glue, and we stick to it previously cut out yellow ovals from paper. We glue ovals in rows creating a fruit. At the top we glue cut out from green paper leaves in different shapes and it is ready!
