Perhaps every child has a toy duck. It can be a small squeaker that the baby plays with, it has every chance of becoming a favorite toy. And with rubber ducks, children even bathe in the bath and are very happy at the same time. We suggest you mold a duckling from plasticine. We recommend modeling with young children who already know what ducklings look like and are able to learn colors and shapes.
Our master class provides a detailed guide to creating a plasticine duck. Learning by playing is the most effective method practiced by all educators. By completing all the planned stages, children will learn a lot: they will learn the names of the shades used in the work, remember some geometric images, compare objects, and so on.
What you need to prepare for sculpting a duckling:
- yellow plasticine;
- orange plasticine;
- some blue plasticine;
How to make a plasticine duck step by step.
1. Yellow plasticine – the most successful for the case presented. Little ducklings look like yellow lumps, they are tender and fluffy. Using plasticine, of course, it will not be possible to convey such tenderness, however, the yellow color is ideal for creating a duckling. And the toy version will be great. Knead the plasticine in your hands. If the main color is not enough, then always use a little trick – mask some plasticine of a different color inside the large balls.Consider the colors, name them, help the baby remember their names.
2. Divide the prepared mass into 2 parts. The head should be slightly smaller than the body. After dividing a piece and rolling 2 balls again, compare them and draw an important conclusion about their sizes.
Glue an orange beak to a small ball-head, press down on top and bottom, flatten with fingertips. Also, with your fingertips, pull out a large ball, on one side. Thus, it will be possible to show the tail attached to the body.
3. Insert a toothpick into the front of the torso to further secure the head. Make two orange paws with two cuts each. The paws of the duck can be wide, so the whole figure will turn out to be stable.
4. Attach the head to the body, attach the paws from below. Now you see a figure of a duckling – small, yellow, believable.
5. Attach a small yellow sausage to the head to add mischief to the bird’s appearance. Punch holes for the eyes.
6. It remains only to attach the eyes themselves from the blue grains and make cuts on the tail and on the wings of a small bird. Plasticine duck is ready. He can sail on the blue lake. Be sure to be patient when doing this kind of work.
Praise the baby even if the result of his work is far from ideal. Adults can always imperceptibly correct the result, without discouraging the young sculptor from creating his masterpieces.
