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.
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!
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.
To create a quickly ripening apple, a teacher cuts out before a fruit shape from a sheet of a technical pad. Children are to tear pieces of paper and glue them to a sheet of paper. Three colours show three stages of ripening – at the bottom it is still green, on the left a yellow apple in ripening stage. On the right side it is already quite red.
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.
