Nut Monkey

Talented needlewomen or craftsmen, of course, do not become, but are born. In creative natures, the feeling of colors, forms and textures is three times more developed than in ordinary people. However, if a creative gift is not developed, it does not create fertile soil for its blooming, or conditions that induce an artistic discovery, it can wither without even revealing. Work on crafts - not just a game, but a way to expand the horizons of children. Children learn to see geometric shapes and three-dimensional bodies in the environment, to distinguish their properties, to transform and complement them. Creating crafts using natural materials is not only useful, but also incredibly interesting. How do you like a monkey of walnuts?

To make a little primate, you need to find: - walnuts - a piece of crumb
- PVA glue - markers - a piece of rope.

For the decor, we will use white stone and dried leaves,we will plant a monkey under a palm tree. However, if these materials are not available, the animal can be seated on any other pedestal or, making a loop, hang on a decorative home flower. Immediately, we note all the materials used in the craft, interchangeable. For example, a rope can be replaced with a yarn folded in several layers. Place a piece of bread without the hassle takes plasticine. The craft will become much stronger if, instead of the PVA glue, you use special analogues for wood or plastic. So, we proceed. First, crush the breadcrumbs with your fingers to the state of elastic clay. We roll a ball out of it, which will serve as a primate face. To the semi-circular part was convenient to glue, stretch its edges from the side of contact with the walnut.

We put the ball to the shell, adjust the size of the muzzle to the shape of the head.

Immediately sculpt round eyes and ears from the crumb. Finished parts can be put aside and dried, or they can be glued raw. We will use the last option.Small parts of the head will dry on the craft, but they will not lose their shape.

We make the limbs of a primate from a rope and breadcrumbs. Fingers knead bread in a cake, and wrap the ends of the rope. The result was a kind of hands and feet.

With the help of PVA, we glue the arms and legs of a monkey. The minus of all that is happening is that the glue dries for an incredibly long time (10 - 15 minutes). All this time, the rope must be held in one position. This is really the education of will and patience. But the result is worth the candle.

Do not forget about the long tail.

When everything is dry, we attach the head to the body with a thick layer of PVA. We are waiting for another 20-30 minutes. Suddenly the glue will not stand the weight of walnuts? No, everything is okay.Now it's time to make a small island. Simple decor looks like. On a piece of rock clay attached green grass shrub, imitating an exotic palm tree.

Apparently, the primate dealt with bananas. Now sits and waits until they bring something delicious. Maybe a slice of cake? Now the work on the craft can be considered finished. Creative success!
