Application - the first steps to the development of the creative abilities of the child
For the little ones
The first creative works of the crumbs are completely unpretentious and require the active participation of adults. But even if the kid only put a part to the base in a year - this is a big progress! It is important to choose simple, clear forms of large sizes from paper of bright colors.
For the first creative experience you can use the following:
- circles and semicircles;
- long stripes;
In addition, you can print the base with the printed pattern and offer the child to supplement it with cut paper details:
- “Plant” a bee or a butterfly on a flower;
- to add a snowman with accessories - a carrot nose, a bucket;
- put paper clouds on the sky, etc.
The kid takes part by virtue of its capabilities. But in any case, he gets pleasure from joint activities.
Classes for kids two to three years
At this age, kids show amazing abilities - they are curious and open to new skills. Applications for 2-year-old children are simple; a breakaway technique is also applied, but the kid can already apply glue to the parts and place them on the base. Such an activity takes the child, develops perseverance from him, and introduces him to flowers and shapes.
In addition, at this age, you can put a more difficult task - to offer to make a figure of several parts:
It can be any - from round, oval parts or strips. Naturally, the help of parents in this work is necessary, but the kid will show his potential and abilities. This is a great gift for mom or grandmother, and the child will be proud of his creation.
Excellent Christmas appliqué for children, giving the appropriate mood.It should make templates in the form of Christmas trees and Christmas toys. The child will decorate "his" Christmas tree. In addition, classes can diversify the New Year's song, rhymes, riddles relevant topics.
A paper napkin can be an excellent basis for gluing decorations - all sorts of shapes.
Applications for children of 3 years are complicated not only by the forms, but also by the fact that the child learns to cut out the paper details. To do this, it is necessary to provide safe scissors with rounded ends, explain the rules of use and not leave unattended.
What can interest a child 4-5 years?
Applications for children 4 years of age are technically more complex. The number of pieces from which whole compositions are made increases. This allows you to develop logic and show imagination.
Parents can adopt a number of ideas:
"Pyramid" of paper.
Need to draw circles or ovals, different in size, as well as the tip for the pyramid - it can be a regular cone or a snout of an animal. The child himself or together with an adult cuts them out.Initially, it should be explained how to make a pyramid correctly, and then suggest that the child stick on the parts. Creating paper applications for children is very useful, this lesson improves spatial perception and fine motor skills.
Application for children with their own hands, which is to create a turtle from several parts - shell, legs, head. And, besides, it is necessary to offer the child to decorate its shell with geometric figures of different shapes and colors. Naturally, we are not talking about their chaotic arrangement, but about thoughtful design. The kid can choose a certain color, alternate circles with squares, etc.
Blank - paper or cardboard with painted grass and trees. Details - parts of mushrooms, flowers, the sun and other details. The child must correctly position the figures - gathering mushrooms and placing the rest of the decor.
Patterns of applications for children can be very different. Naturally, such work will force the child to think, orient himself in space and compare different parts. But besides this, the result will allow to fully assess their own capabilities.
Application for older children
Children who will soon go to school, have many skills, but do not cease to get involved in creativity. For children 5 years old and older, there are many interesting and original technologies that can seriously entice even adults:
The technology of creating a volume application from paper. It will take a lot of strips that are curled. Such elements are suitable for decorating panels, cards and other surfaces.
Applications from other materials.
Paper applications for children over 5 years old may seem boring, so you can diversify the lessons with the use of materials that are always at hand. You can use cloth scraps, cereals (suitable rice, semolina, buckwheat). You can also take the eggshell, straw, seeds. Excellent products are obtained from natural materials - dried leaves, petals, twigs, pieces of bark and other things. In addition, parts can be pre-painted using conventional paints.
Creativity is an integral part in the development of the child’s personal qualities and abilities. And it is important to give your child the opportunity to express themselves - at first using only glue and paper, gradually complicating the task.
