Making volumetric applications

Making volumetric applications

Insno, time when parents are engaged in creativity with children. One of the favorite creative sessions of preschoolers and children is 7-8 years old is the technique of volumetric appliqué.

What it is?

Everyone knows the applique technique when on paper or any other material is glued with cut figures of a certain shape. As a result, flat pictures or whole compositions are obtained. But the technique of cutting and gluing figures from paper based on the basis is much wider. One of the interesting varieties of this type of visual equipment is the volumetric application. It looks much more realistic than plane.

Cutting and flexing classes are useful for the development of hands of hands, as well as to educate accuracy and hard work in children. Creating volumetric applications also contributes to improved spatial thinking.

How to make flowers?

In kindergarten you can make beautiful postcards with volumetric colors. In the process of kids will get acquainted with some flowering plants and learn them to distinguish them. With the work on the volumetric applications with the image of the colors easily cope with children older than 5 years. Simple pencil better choose medium softness. Scissors who enjoy children should be with rounded ends. What other materials are required, indicated for each applique.
