In kindergarten and school, at home and in the circle of “skillful hands” - everywhere and always, children are happy to make bright and interesting crafts, come up with unusual things to decorate a classroom or their room, make original gifts for friends and parents, and prepare work for the exhibition or competition. At the same time, children's products are distinguished by the simplicity of the materials used and the ease of manufacture, because little craftsmen must cope with work without the intervention of adults. So, any kid can make funny animals out of eggs. Having shown a little imagination, you can make, for example, a cheerful cow from an egg shell.
To make the craft, we need the following basic materials: an egg (we make a small hole in the shell and pour the contents), gouache paints, floss thread, cardboard, plain paper, PVA glue and super-glue, a brush, scissors, a simple pencil, varnish, sewing accessories.
Carefully glue the hole made in the egg shell with paper, and then paint the whole egg in yellow. After the paint dries, draw black spots on top.
From the cardboard we cut out the head of the cow and select the main details with a simple pencil. In size, the head should be slightly smaller than the body. Color the lower part in pink, the upper in the same yellow-black colors. Draw the eyes, ears, horns and mouth.
Now we glue two main parts. At the same time, we fix the head on the side - as if it was slightly turned to the side. We fix all the details on super-glue, otherwise they simply will not hold.
We proceed to the manufacture of the remaining parts. Cut the legs - a narrow strip of cardboard, glued on both sides with squares of plain white paper. We also prepare the basics for the tail and crest. The legs and top of the tail are painted in yellow, the hooves and everything else in brown.
From a mouline thread we make a crest. To do this, we sew the cardboard base with threads, but we do not tighten the loops. Then glue the crest to the head.
In order to attach the legs, it is necessary to make cuts on the sides if they are not there initially (we cut approximately to the middle). It is better to cut off the upper corners so that then they do not peel off from the round base of the body and do not puff. Now glue the parts.
The tip of the tail is also made of floss thread, winding them on the brown part. Using scissors and PVA glue, we give the tail the necessary look - cut it out in the shape of a triangle and coat with glue so that the threads do not fray.
The craft is ready. For greater strength and safety, it is better to varnish the product.
Using the same principle, using cardboard, paints and eggshells, it’s enough to just come up with and make a lot of different animals.
Such cute animals made of eggs made by the baby’s hands can be a great present, souvenir, toy or decoration.
