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).
We soak sand with printing ink (in different colours), leave it to dry out, then sieve through mesh. So, we have coloured sand. We pour in through a funnel in portions of one table spoon (colours at children’s discretion), to obtain a thicker layer we pour in two table spoons. Finally, each child finishes by twisting a bottle cap and binding a coloured material on the outside.
A ball - a congratulatory scroll is a good idea considering a gift for a father who is a sports fan or just for an interesting work of art. We print a ball image on a piece of colour paperboard. We fold a card in half and cut out along its external edges – to create a congratulatory scroll consisting of two circles. There is plenty of space inside which can be used for drawings for a father.
Any stone painted with poster paints and besprinkled with grey and silver brocade. You can use hair spray to solidify your work.
In order to create a spacecraft “Alfa” children must first cut out a round shape from grey paperboard. The next activity is to cut a slit in it. Children cut it from one side – from the edge to a centre of a circle. Then pupils cut one piece on the second one and glue it together to form a not too high cone. Then, children cut out of white paper a shape of main window of a cabin of a flying saucer.
First we must blow a yellow balloon. The next step is to prepare thin strips of black crepe which we stick to the balloon in regular intervals. Next a child cuts out wings from coloured paper and glues them to the balloon. Now it is enough to draw eyes and a smile and our work is finished!
We cut out a one piece from an egg box, we drag out a creative wire through two holes (we create a proboscis and a tail), beside a proboscis we glue movable eyes, and on the sides ears with heart shape cut out from the red sheet of paperboard.
While having a walk with children we collect “noses” of a maple. We cut out of a sheet of paper two rectangles rounded in their corners – wings and a body of a dragonfly. We glue them together forming a cross. We stick “noses” of a maple on the wings, and we make two small holes in the head through which we pull raffia – tentacles.
We put glue on the chosen part of a drawing and sprinkle it with a suitable product (barley, buckwheat, rice, etc.), and press with fingers. We lift a sheet of paper to remove unnecessary seeds. We do that until we cover the whole area of a picture with seeds. Finally, we cut out from coloured paper eyes, a bill and a branch on which an owl sits.
We draw a squirrel on a colour sheet of paper using a template. We fill outlines with a red poster paint and we glue overlapping one to another dried leaves as its tail. We put into its feet a half of a walnut rind and stick it with plasticine. We draw eyes and claws using a felt-tip pen.
