First of all, make sure that your knife is sharp. After all, quite often you will need to cut out small items from vegetables and without an acute knife make it quite problematic.
Attention! If your child is still quite small, then do not give him a knife in his hands.
You can cut out all the necessary details yourself, butYour baby will put them together. But in order that the child does not take offense, be sure to explain to him that there are such things that you can use only adults.
Generally, from the creation process crafts can be done Quite an exciting game. For example, you can create a whole family of fairy-tale creatures and play several scenes from their life. By the way, if you see that your baby has something to worry about, then you can accurately find out the reason, because the child will necessarily include the disturbing situation in one of the plots.
It is also worth noting that such aPastime is very useful for your child, because in the process of creativity develops fantasy, the kid learns to calculate several moves forward in order to tell you a short story about the characters he created.

For a body, a curved cucumber is ideal. Be sure to cut the bottom a little, so that our figure is more stable.
In a thick straight cucumber cut off about a third- this will be a cap. The remaining part is cut along into two parts. From one we'll make a tail, and the second will be part of the head. Teeth are cut with a knife.
From the part that we cut off from the trunk for stability, we'll make two legs. If you have the time and desire, you can cut a few notches on the tail for a greater similarity to the original.
All parts can be fastened with toothpicks orMatches. Eyes with you we will make of olives. To prevent them from getting too bulky, you can cut off most of the olives and eat them. But the remaining tip is enough for the eyes. So it turned out we have quite a cute crocodile Gene.
