Crafts from cones for children

As mentioned above, children love to make animals and men. The cones are great for creating a torso, and from an acorns or large wooden beads – heads. For example, when creating a skier figurine, which in the future can be hung on the Christmas tree, you will need sticks from ice cream. Ski themselves are made, and the cinema wire is used for handles.

Clothes for such a man Mom can sew from a fabric, for example, felt. Creare all the details of each other best with the help of a glue gun, so the child needs help in this difficult.

Unique crafts from conesInteresting will be crafts from pine cones and needles. First of them do hedgehogs. Work is to underline pine needles bursting. The latter glue with plasticine, and then with the toothpicks insert into the main material.

After that, they must be taken to get a real hedgehog, or leave as it is, but then it turns out a dike. The muzzle and ears usually make plasticine, and the pea of ​​black pepper will serve as the nose. Rowan berries fasten the berries or hand-made mushrooms from angry and twigs.

With older children you can make a more complex hedgehog. It will take a lot of fully discontinued cones, but not spruce, and pine, one bowl or deep plate (fit unnecessary, fragant), three covers from ordinary plastic bottles, plastic bottle, glue («Moment», PVA), Paints and Scotch.

The plate is turned over and glued to one of the sides half a bottle (with a neck), and then the tape is inserted for reliability. After that, a bowl and a bottle is painted from all sides of brown or black paint. You can use primer in a can. Over the entire surface of the bowl glue cones, the bottle does not touch, as it acts as a face.

Of the two remaining covers, they make eyes and glued on the bottle. From plastic bands or other suitable material makes a mustache, which are attached by screwing the lid on the neck of the bottle. You can decorate such a little animals with rowabine and viburnum berries, branches and leaves.

What you need to consider when working with children

Crafts from cones with their own hands – fascinating and interesting pastime. Natural materials allow the child to feel the beauty of nature, but also suggest him ideas for creating images.

Such classes are developing creative imagination in children, for example, in the most ordinary shishke, they can see a mouse or hedgehog, christmas tree, and in some roof – a deer horn or heron’s leg.

It is necessary to teach the baby to consider any images in natural forms and textures. When parents with a bluer, seeing, for example, a bump, decided to make a swan from her, then the next stage will be bonding several parts of each other. It is important that the child learns to fasten these elements.

In this case, it will learn to work with scissors, shell, needle, threads, glue and plasticine. But not always the baby must independently perform such work. In some cases, parents are better to do this for him, and not because his fingers are not very obedient, he can cut down or trick.

Of course, such manipulations in the future can also be entrusted to him, but first, as they say, you need to give him work «on the shoulder».

Connection of parts

The fastest and easiest way to fasten the details of the crackers from the cones is gluing with plasticine. This method is less aesthetics than others, but the child will work easier with it. The material is also used for eyes, nose and beaks, that is, small details that lack in the intended image.

Credit heads with a torso can be with toothpicks, but pre-in the acorns or other similar material it is necessary to make holes with a selection. Then in these holes insert the toothpicks themselves and fasten them with glue (the usual PVA is suitable) to make the fastening more reliable.

But natural materials have the ability to marry with time (this has already been mentioned above), so even such a reliable connection can be deformed. In this method, you can bond crafts for the garden or school that the child does along with parents.

Unique crafts from conesUsed and glue «Moment». To do this, it is smeared to the place of the joint and quickly press the details to each other.

The positive point of use of such adhesive is reliability, and the product acquires a more aesthetic appearance, but with such a means to small children it is better not to work, for them it is too dangerous.

Also, it is impossible to abuse similar substances, because with long-term inhalation of vapors there will be side effects.

For the same purpose, ordinary threads with needles are used. They are perfectly suitable for connecting soft materials, such as leaves, berries and bark of trees.

For a small child, it will be an unbearable task, but the toddler of older with the help of parents will cope with her well. However, such crafts or their details are less durable, as it sweat sufficiently strongly, significantly decreasing in size.
