Balloons are the most accessible and familiar element of decor that accompanies almost all holidays. The presence of balls in the room immediately creates the feeling that something significant is coming. Be sure to use them to decorate the class.

You can do it like this:

Be sure to buy balloons of different colors. Preferably monochromatic, without catchy and inappropriate inscriptions, so that they do not destroy the atmosphere.

  • Spread the regular air balloons around the classroom. Decorate the corners of the blackboard, the door, tie balloons to the backs of chairs, or stock up on some balloons for contests;
  • write letters on the balloons with a marker and put together an inscription from them, for example: "First September", "Hello, first grade! " and so on;
  • if you are a fan of creative approaches, you can collect from the balls a character from a children's cartoon or even a metaphorical image of a first grader;
  • for a competition or just a nice little thing, get a long , elongated like a sausage ball. Such balls are used to add various shapes: a man, a dog or a ring. Put them on desks and let your students get creative! Such a surprise will definitely not leave children indifferent, but do not forget to help those who are not very good at spinning the ball.

Something about color

It's no secret that at such an early age children are very mobile and are sometimes simply amazingly eccentric. That is why the correct choice of the color of the walls is especially important in such a process as the design of the primary school office.

Reddish shades, for example, will affect the nervous system as a kind of catalyst, and therefore you should not even count on an order of magnitude during lessons. The blue scale, on the other hand, leads to a state of calm and stimulates mindfulness, which makes it one of the most successful options. The design of the primary school classroom in green shades can also be called correct, but the yellow shade of the spectrum, although it will contribute to the strengthening of the student body, will negatively affect the concentration of attention.


It should be understood that the blackboard is central and key. First, it will invariably figure in the further learning process. Secondly, the blackboard in almost all classrooms occupies almost the entire wall, and the students, accordingly, look exactly at it. Therefore, it is absolutely impossible to lose sight of the board.

Be careful when choosing crayons. Some of them tend to scratch the surface of the board. Even after you erase them, there are clear traces of the previous inscription. Test the crayons on your board before you use them.


It just so happened that all children sculpt animals according to the same pattern - an oval body, a round head, cylindrical legs. Therefore, their horse looks like a cat, a cat looks like a pig, etc. The fact is that the children caught the GENERAL signs of the structure of the animal's body - the body, head, paws, tail. And according to this single pattern, they mold all the animals, and the mother must guess who it is.

I always try to draw the attention of children to PROPORTIONS - the ratio of the size of the body and head, the length and thickness of the legs.

Even such a laconic element of an animal as a head is not necessarily a BALL made of plasticine. The head is a complex shape. Each animal has a different shape. And every breed of dog does too.

That is why, using the example of dogs of different breeds, it is most convenient to teach a child to see, understand and feel the proportions and ratios of elements.

Here in the photo below we see a Master Class, where the dog's head consists of two main elements - a wide muzzle at the bottom and a narrower frontal part at the top. The ears and nose make the face look like a dog.

The body of this dog is the most common - an elongated oval. And the main convenience in this dog specimen is its recumbent posture.

The most difficult thing for a kindergarten child is to put a plasticine dog on its paws so that it does not fall on its side (due to different lengths of paws or different levels of their attachment).

The pose of a plasticine dog, when it lies on its belly, and its legs are spread out in different directions, is the most successful for modeling with children who are just learning to work with plasticine.

The muzzle of such a dog can be dazzled in this way. Just at the second reinforcing lesson in sculpting a domestic animal.

Stylish Pug

Modeling from plasticine for children should not only develop, this work should bring pleasure and fun. Therefore megamaster. nfo recommends you make a pug according to the instructions below. Prepare:

What girl doesn't dream of a big dollhouse. The stores offer a wide range of doll houses, with all kinds of decor and many storeys.

But not every adult can afford to buy such a toy for his child. The price for them is very high, so we will offer you a good alternative. Let's make a dollhouse with our own hands.


The best material for making a dollhouse is plywood. It is quite lightweight and durable, no games are scary to it.

Plywood should be used with a minimum formaldehyde content. They are used in the composition of the glue with which the wood fibers are glued.

Formaldehyde is hazardous to health, especially in young children. To avoid poisoning your children, pay attention to the plywood markings.

The most suitable material would be plywood marked E 0. It is relatively inexpensive, so for a small allocated budget, you can easily make any dream house.

Plywood items have a beautiful appearance and do not require additional costs for decoration. This type of material is not whimsical to use, it can be easily processed with any tools.

Choosing the material for the house

Consider the most famous materials for creating a dollhouse:

  • Plywood. A great option, perfect for the job. The advantages are the strength of the frame, resistance to mechanical stress and ease of the work process.
  • Drywall. It is also a fairly durable option for making a house. Most often, massive multi-storey models are formed from this base. For fastening, you will need several metal corners and construction tools. A clear plus is the convenience of applying decorative elements: paint, acrylic varnish, fabric blanks.
  • OSB boards. Pressed wood chips have a number of pleasant properties: frame strength, resistance to high humidity, and does not absorb unpleasant odors. It is easy to apply paints or varnish on the surface of the OSB house.
  • Cardboard. The cheapest and easiest material to use. Most often, this option is used for joint work with children: cardboard is easy to cut with a clerical knife or scissors, you do not need to use construction tools. Disadvantages are the fragility of the cardboard, instability to moisture.
  • Furniture boards. This base is especially popular among craftsmen: the material has good environmental performance and is easy to use in practice. The shields have a pleasant decorative appearance, the workpieces can be easily joined using durable glue.
