Last Saturday afternoon we spent with the children in the park. During fun definitely towered playground, where children played excellently. After all, we managed to find a moment for a short walk in the park. I should add that park full of oaks, and if so, and also the acorns.
We collected acorns and other gifts of nature. Nuts linden, maple noses, and many others. With our collection of fresh, still green acorns, after returning home, there were tiny forest people...
The forest people were're made mostly of acorns. A small part also have toothpicks and matches (optional). As a decoration young, forestry lady, they served fruit lime trees. Its dried nuts can now gather directly from the trees.
Art projects for kids
Fun in the creation of humanoids and animal figurines from the gifts of nature the most screwed children early autumn. Especially if we are talking about preschooler kids. Fruits who we use are still so soft that children easily cope with the exercise of holes.
What? I prefer children not to give needles to such strength work. But we've drwaing pin with a large head with a plastic material.
If you want to use matches, the best have to remove the head, and the holes should be larger. It's easier to stick a sharp toothpick in acorns.
In the case of hat acorns, which serve little peoples for shoes are necessary holes for the legs. Preschoolers rather would not cope with shooting holes, so in this part the children need help adults.
Necklace with peanuts linden easier to do if the fruit does not harden. Just to slip them on a thread. In mid-September, it is difficult to find such like that. They are already dry on the trees. Younger children need to be prepared in advance of these beads, making the holes through. Children threading such beads on a thread without a problem.
Details add a permanent marker. This is the end of crafts for kids and the beginning of fun.
So, tell me ... What do you do with your own figures?
