Creating funny vegetable and fruit diy -a great developmental activity for children in preschool or in primary school classes, which they can do with their own hands. Using carrots, cucumbers, apples and potatoes in the presented master classes, you will create a giraffe, crocodile, piglet and bear cub. Your child, just like you, will easily learn through illustrations and step-by-step instructions. The first thing is a crocodile made of carrot and cucumber. If you want to create an interesting hand-made article from vegetables, then it is advisable not to choose too complex figures, and she should be similar to the children of the hero of fairy tales or cartoons. Avoid using unfamiliar and hard-to-reach materials. In our case, we only need: • three cucumbers (two medium sized with small bends, one less than two preceding and more rounded); • carrot; • Cutting board (for convenience); • tomato; • olives. Before working with vegetables, they should be prepared. In spite of the fact that only three cucumbers are used in the craft, it is desirable to take them with a reserve, so that in the event of a marriage, it would be better to replace the failed part. Each vegetable should be thoroughly washed and dried or wiped. Description of the order of actions. 1. From the smallest cucumber we cut one edge. On the reverse side of it we perform a deep notch and cut out a piece of triangular shape in the core. Next, we prepare a piece of a larger cucumber, which will be used as a head. It is more preferable to take a cucumber of a darker color. 2. A hat is cut from the top of the carrot. You can also work on the creation of air scarf, but for him choose a longer carrot than in the illustration. 3. Fix the head of the crocodile with a toothpick, and now it begins to take shape. 4. Light cucumber prunings after the carving will go to the circles for the peephole. The production of pupils is better done from olives, although the currant (black) is also suitable. 5. Eyes are carefully attached to the head with the help of pieces of toothpicks. A stripe of tomato is put into the crocodile's mouth. 6. The largest cucumber is cut off both edges. Scraps are used to make two pairs of legs according to the illustration. A pair of forelegs is made a little less. 7. Taking the cucumber core and making it rectangles, we perform nadreziki imitating the accordion (see illustration). 8. Using the pieces of toothpicks, attach the musical instrument and the upper pair of legs to the trunk. Using a toothpick, we attach the head to the body. Then the tail is cut (fit and trim) and put on the dish along with the two lower paws. Fixation of these elements to the body is not at all necessary, but they are also attached, if desired. At this work on making crafts made of cucumbers with their own hands are completed! The second thing is a bear cub and a barrel of honey frompotatoes. It is difficult to find a more convenient material than potatoes. If you decide to make a toy out of this base, do not use tubers without preliminary short welding. A short cooking will help the potatoes not to darken and keep the appearance attractive. Correctly brewed tuber freely pierces and dissolves, will keep the shape, will serve as an inexpensive basis for any crafts. Necessary set of materials and tools: • two olives; • sharp knife; • carrots (one small disc); • a dozen toothpicks; • Processed cheese (piece); • three small potatoes one medium (not young). Choose always the largest tuber ontrunk and most rounded for the head. Before work, vegetables are washed, and potatoes are also brewed. It is important that after cooking, the potatoes remain moderately firm, but have a hint of boiled vegetable. Course of work. 1. Take one small potato and make paired leg pieces according to the illustration. Lower limbs are important to make flat, so that they provide stability for the entire craft. 2. The second small tuber is cut in two, and inside the halves is a small notch into which the carrot disk is embedded. He imitates a pot of honey in our craft. 3. Take soft cream cheese and form ovals, which are then glued to the bear's head. 4. We take the olive tree and cut out the oval for the nose and round pupils. Cheese is added to the head. 5. Ears can be cut from potato chips, in accordance with the illustration and fix on the head of the bear cub with toothpicks (slices). 6. Slightly cut the elements of the lower pair of legs and trunk to give stability to the work. We firmly fix the four toothpicks. 7. The upper pair of paws with a pot attached to the body. 8. The work on the creation of a joint for the connection of the head with the trunk is being completed. Stability is largely due to the presence of a "pot of honey" in front. Do not you dare eat this hand-crafted article from undercooked potatoes, especially, do not let children do it.
The third is a carrot giraffe.
Carrots, which serve as the mainmaterial, gives the crafts a bright color. It will be interesting to make it not only for babies from kindergarten, but also for junior students. Wash the carrots before you start. Remove olives from the brine. Thoroughly dry everything. Carrots should be cleaned. The process of making a carrot giraffe. 1. We take a large carrot and cut off a piece from a wide edge. Slightly round out the shape of the giraffe body in accordance with the illustration. 2. Two thinner carrots will be used to make four elongated pieces of equal thickness. 3. For the purpose of manufacturing the above parts, we recommend using a knife to clean vegetables. This is especially true, since our craft is intended for preschool, so safety is paramount. 4. The remaining pieces of large carrots are used for cutting out two parts: the head and neck (see illustration). The neck is made thinner, so that the size of the figure is proportional. 5. Using two of the two broken toothpicks, attach the legs to the body. 6. The head is attached to the neck also with a piece of toothpick. After that, the entire design is placed on the trunk, using a long-lasted toothpick. 7. We take olives and cut out thin circles to elements of various shapes. The number of such parts depends only on your desire. 8. Details of pieces of olives should be attached to the giraffe, but before that you should dip them into the marinade in which they were stored. It is imperative to make eyes and nostrils for the giraffe. Carrot scraps are useful for makingears. If you want to make the work easier, black spots simply apply with a marker. Of course, such a giraffe is not good for eating. 9. Gently inserting the two matches gray in the giraffe's head, you will get his horns. We also recommend using a small knife for the mouth with a knife and inserting greens there. Behind it is necessary to attach a tail, and the handicraft can be considered finished! Try not to move the giraffe unnecessarily,otherwise it can lose its form. The fourth item is a piglet of apples. The making of this craft does not present any particular difficulty. Work with this fruit is very convenient due to the presence of dense skin and a smooth surface. Appearance piglet in many respects will be determined by the variety of apples. In this master class we used such tools and materials: • a knife; • processed cheese (optional); • two small and one larger apple; • a dozen toothpicks; • The olive tree. Traditionally, wash the apples and dry them well. When choosing apples, pay attention to their smoothness and uniformity, the absence of flaws and natural defects. We recommend the sort of Gaudin, but you can also experience with other varieties. 1. Select a large apple and puncture it diagonally from the handle 3-4 with a toothpick (see illustration). Subsequently, the cutting is hidden under the pig's head, so that it does not spoil our product. 2. After that, two apples are connected: a head with a body of a pig. 3. The third apple will serve as the basis for hooves. To do this, cut four wide brusochka roughly equal in size. If the details are excessively thin, the figure will lose its stability. 4. Hooves are attached with toothpicks (can be halves). Here you should focus on the ripeness of apples. In case of using too soft and ripe fruit, it is necessary to pierce them with the help of whole toothpicks. Do not forget that the body will have more mass than the legs. 5. Use the remnants of the 3rd apple to cut out two ears and one circle for the patch. 6. The olive will serve as a material for the patch (you need to cut two small circles) and two arcs for the eyes. It would be superfluous to use a processed cheese for making round eyes and pupils. In case the craft was conceived for preschool, then simplify the work and do as shown in the picture. 7. To the muzzle we fasten the toothpick with a toothpick. 8. Eyes and mouth are made undercutting, in which the details of olives are fixed. We decorate the craft with a tail and it's ready! This concludes our overview lesson on making crafts from vegetables and fruits with our own hands!
