Diligently rolling plasticine with their fingers and hands, children develop fine motor skills, memory, imagination and imagination. Very often you need a theme for modeling, and spring is great for this. It's simplest for children to sculpt what they see, what surrounds them. To make a craft of plasticine on the theme of spring is easiest on cardboard. Just stretch and smudge the clay on the white side. Let the little one come up with the picture itself, or create it in the process of modeling. This will help develop the imagination and reveal the creative potential of the baby. If a child finds it difficult to make a holistic image, adults can help him by drawing contours with a pencil, and the kid will only have to color them. Only instead of colors there will be a multi-colored and bright clay. There is no need to limit the creativity of the baby with a rectangular piece of cardboard. You can cut an oval and depict on it a lake with water lilies that blossomed in the spring, or turn a round piece of cardboard into a stump and "plant" a ladybird, also made of plasticine, on it. To blind a butterfly, "crouched" on a blossoming flower, is a new level of skill. Create a voluminous figure is more difficult. Several such products can be combined into a composition. For example, dazzle a few spring flowers and put them in a plasticine vase. And you can combine. On one piece of cardboard to represent a clearing with green grass and snowdrops, and the second piece of cardboard to fix vertically, creating a background. Spring from the dough.

Keep this clay in a sealed package. The downside of such clay is the fragility of finished products and deformation from contact with water. Handicrafts from this clay require careful care. The baked polymer clay solidifies when heated to a temperature of 110 - 130 ° C. You can use the oven or "weld" the product from such clay in the water. Thermoplastics are sensitive to temperature. In a cool room, it will need to be kneaded longer. Old hardened thermoplastic can be softened by special means or ordinary vegetable oil. Products made of thermoplastics are strong. Thin details can restore their shape after deformation, they are very flexible. It is better for small children to work with natural clay. This material is environmentally safe and easy to handle.
