A few words about the preparation for creativity. Acorns are better to use freshly collected, fresh - which are easier to pierce. Also, in addition to the acorns, prepare the following:

How to make crafts from dough
A salty dough should please a child. It is soft, plastic and easy to use. In addition, you can not worry that the child decides to try the material for taste - it's not plasticine. The composition includes only flour, salt and water. Mukasolki - the so-called crafts made of dough - differ in the complexity of the performance. In some ways you can help the child, but, most likely, he will do it himself.
How to cook dough
Mix 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of fine-grainedsalt (coarse gives a less uniform composition) and pour in about a third of a glass of water. Mix everything. If the mass is too liquid, add flour, if it crumbles - add water. Finitethe result - a plastic, soft mass, similar to plasticine.
The dough can be dyed immediately. Divide the mass into lumps. For each squeeze the paint (acrylic or gouache) in small quantities and begin to knead the dough. Soon the paint will be completely dispersed and the lump will become a uniform color. The dough is conveniently stored in a food film and kept in the refrigerator. Ready dough can be used immediately for creativity.
What to make of the test
How about a nice hedgehog? For its manufacture, prepare:
- peas of pepper;
- nail scissors;
From the foil, question the bead-base. The basis will need to be pasted with a test, forminga narrow muzzle. Then they cut out needles with scissors. This should be done with the adult so that the baby does not get hurt. The muzzle is attached to the eyes and nose from pepper, a toothpick is drawn by a smiling mouth. So the daredevil is ready. Handicraft dried on the battery or, if the yard is summer, in the sun. On the back of the hedgehog, you can put dried berries, an acorn or a small cone and fix it with glue.
