Since the first years of life of the baby many parentsare puzzled by the purchase of toys for their child. The basic requirements for toys for young children are their safety, as well as the benefits for the development of the child. Such requirements are met by a soft development cube in all the parameters, the ideas for creating which you will learn from our master class. Such soft cubes are used in techniquesearly development of children known throughout the world as authors: Zaitsev, Chaplygin, and Nikitin, famous for the creation of cubes-transformers based on the Rubik's cube principle. At the master class you will learn how to make cubes of Zaitsev with your own hands for your kids from improvised tools. So, in the process of work we will need:

• empty boxes of milk or kefir with a square bottom;
• ruler, simple pencil, glue and wide adhesive tape;
• filler for cubes (coins, cardboard cuttings, bottle plastic and iron covers);
• self-adhesive paper of yellow, blue and gray colors;
• Stencils with letters or pre-cut letters of paper.

## Operating procedure

• To begin with, we measure seven centimeters on the side of pre-prepared empty boxes from under dairy products with a square bottom (with a facet length of 7 cm) and outline the folding position.
• Then measure the top three centimeters and cut off the unnecessary part of the box.
• We bend the carton of the box along the intended place of the fold and seal it with adhesive tape. A cube with an opening on one side was obtained, which is useful for filling the cube with filler.

• Fill the cubes with filler: the future yellow cubes - with coins, gray ones with cardboard scraps, blue ones with bottle caps (this is necessary for the child to recognize the sounds).
• We paste the resulting cubes with a self-adhesive film.

• We apply letters to the sides of the finished blocks by applying a stencil, or paste pre-cut letters.

That's all, our master class, in which we showed how to make cubes Zaitsev own hands, is over.
