Egg Tray Train
For classes with children it is important to use a variety of material. Children like to see something common in ordinary things, to fantasize. Having at home several models of toy locomotives, the child still seeks to create a toy for himself. And, as a rule, the material chosen for this is not intended. The article deals with paper egg trays from supermarkets. Before working with children, it is desirable to treat them with a soda solution to avoid the possibility of picking up some infection. To do this, soda must be diluted with water, pour into a spray bottle and sprinkle the tray. After drying, you can begin to work.
You will need:
- egg tray (2 pcs.);
- double-sided tape;
- stationery buttons (optional).
The body for an engine is cut out from trays,eight wheels and a bumper (its front).
Then every detail is attached to the base with double-sided tape. The wheels can be decorated with office buttons or colored paper circles.
Also the wheels must be supplemented with chopsticks. This is done using the same double-sided tape.
Everything else depends on the imagination and patience of the child and the one who helps him . And even if the odd job is not at all like a steam locomotive, the main thing is the creative process itself, which often fascinates children more than the final result.
