Crafts from natural materials. chestnut monkey
How do you not want to let go of the sunny summer! But months are steadily replacing one another. Outside the end of October. During walks, my daughter and I constantly pick chestnuts, replenishing the collection with new fresh fruits. Glossy peel looks incredibly beautiful. The child is happy to make crafts from chestnuts: hedgehogs, bears and other heroes.
Each time, plasticine parts become neater. Mom does not need to smooth out bumps, eliminate flaws.
Today we will make a monkey out of chestnuts. Our heroine does not belong to the autumn theme of crafts. However, mother’s soul today is torn to the tropics to monkeys, crocodiles or banana plantations.
For work we get:
- 2 chestnuts;
- plasticine box.
In fact, there is nothing complicated in the design of the muzzle of an animal. We attached a triangular flat nose and a tiny tongue to the orange plasticine oval. Then they fashioned two flat little ears and a mischievous forelock. If plastic decorative eyes are available, then you can use them.
This is how the monkey’s head looks like after attaching all the plasticine parts to the chestnut tree.
Now we attach the neck to the body and roll out two thin tubes – the paws of the animal. With the help of a stack, gently squeeze the fingers into the plasticine.
We attach the paws to the chestnut, after bending them at the elbows. The monkey is holding on to its tummy. Laughing, probably.
Further from long tubes we form the lower limbs of the craft. There is a problem. On thin legs, the heroine will not stand, but on thick ones, she will look ridiculous. So, there is only one way out – to put the monkey on the ground. We bend the tubes as shown in the picture. On the feet, we select the fingers in a stack.
We attach new parts to the body of the craft and at the same time make a tail, a stump and a banana for the monkey. We use an edible fruit as a decor, but a plasticine stump is an important thing. Without it, the craft will constantly tip over.
We are ready to demonstrate the result of hard work. The monkey was a success.
Time flew by unnoticed. The child is delighted with the creative activity. Join. Until we meet again!
