"So that everyone understands his own maneuver": from everything that is at hand!

Take on work boldly
Don't turn around

do not hurry.
And always any business
do only from the heart!
(Song from the screensaver of the TV show of the USSR shopping center "Skillful hands")

Creativity is around us. So, summer is approaching - the time of holidays and the time to finally work out with your child, be it a girl or boy, son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter. For this, today everything is there. You don't even need to strain your head. You just need a desire, but buying something in addition is not a problem either. Of course, there are branded and, by the way, very expensive sets for creativity. But ... you can replace them with literally everything that we have at hand.

Nowadays, many goods in stores are packed in large boxes made of three-layer cardboard. It is perfectly cut and glued with PVA glue. That is, it is an ideal material for working with children both at home and in the school circle. And you can make absolutely everything out of it, and quickly. The latter is especially important because children are naturally impatient.

Homemade cardboard



Cars from cartons

For example, your son is interested in toy cars. And all the boys are interested in cars. Can buy. Including radio-controlled. But ... where better to make such a car like in the photo. All of it and even the wheels on it are made of cardboard boxes. But there is a steering wheel, and a wiper, and doors, and even soft upholstery on the seats. Moreover, such a car can be very useful for those who have a girl in their family. Let's say she is "playing with the family." In this case, it will depend on you история this family and, so to speak, the chronology of its existence. But if this family is from our time, then ... why not buy a car? And children from this family, as well as from neighboring families, may well go to school (“playing school” is very popular among girls) on such a “school bus”. Moreover, it is also entirely glued from cardboard from packaging.


School bus made of cardboard packaging. Please note that the front door opens and the roof is removed for the convenience of seating passengers. The latter must be foreseen without fail to make it easier for your child to play and make it more entertaining.

I have already talked about "Shpakovsky's vibrating pass". The magazine "Popular Mechanics" once even wrote that in the USSR who just did not make "Shpakovsky's vibrating pass from a soap dish", even in the movie "The Adventures of Petrov and Vasechkin" it was shown, but ... according to this principle, you can make not only a fantastic vibrating pass, but also an excellent toy for a kid - "vibro walk-beetle". Look at the diagram of its manufacture. Everything is very simple here. The base is either plywood or polystyrene, into which six legs of steel wire are either fused or glued. Papier-mâché body. And you need to paint it brightly to make it look beautiful! The main thing is that a micromotor with an unbalance on the shaft, a battery and a switch should fit under the body. And we need to figure out how to make the case removable. When such a beetle hums, trembles and "runs" - it makes an amazing impression on the child. However, on some physics teachers too ...


Vibrating beetle

When your child was just a toddler, you bought cubes for him. Cubes develop - that's for sure. But now he has grown up. What to do with them? Postpone until the new baby or throw it away, so as not to clutter up the apartment? Not. Your child has become older - make him a fantastic all-terrain vehicle on cubic wheels. It is necessary to plant six cubes on axes made of metal rods so that on each axis they are shifted in pairs relative to each other by 180 degrees. In our diagram, the model is moving. The cubes are set on the shafts of the R-1 gearboxes. In our case, for a child (and with him, of course!) It is best to make a simple toy-wheelchair with a plastic box body. And explain to him why, in some cases, cubic wheels may well be used. What is the chassis provides a very high passability on sand. And if you plan to go to the sea, just where there is sand, then it is simply necessary to make such a car so that he has something to play and at the same time develop his imagination.


Kubokhod

The same plastic box and Christmas tree balls made of polystyrene will also help you make an original rolling toy for your child. Well, having put the engine and gearbox, it is not difficult to turn it into a self-propelled mechanism. At the same time, there is a reason to talk with your child about Mars and about flights to this planet, and he may well be carried away by this topic so much that he can read aloud Tolstoy's Aelita (throwing out 80% of the love theme and all kinds of psychedelic outpourings), and “ The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. But also ... not all! "Absolute weapon"Especially at night it is not worth reading.


Sharokat "Mars"

We talk a lot about ecology, about the recycling of waste, we proclaim the slogan: "Waste to income", but so far we have little success. Even India is bigger than ours. There, a very original type of fence is stamped out of garbage. But the same plastic jars for food can be used as ... wheels for original children's homemade toys. Here, for example, such an all-terrain vehicle for other planets, as in the photo below.

Models from packaging



All-terrain vehicle on wheels from cans

To make it, you need 13 cans of processed cheese or sour cream, a plastic box, three axles - these can be thick polystyrene knitting needles. Again: you went to rest. The child quickly got tired of both the sea and the sun. It was then that you suggest to him: "let's do it ...". All this will not take up much space in the luggage. Tools are practically unnecessary if everything is prepared in advance. Adhesive - for polystyrene - polystyrene, for everything else - superglue. Well, silver-colored car paint in a spray can and a set of "sticky letters". In the non-motorized version, it is an excellent toy-wheelchair, transport for the robots-transformers and "soldiers" taken with them. And your child will have something to play with, and what is not at all a pity to leave at the place of rest: "We will make a new one at home!" And he will remember this gift of yours for the rest of his life!


All-terrain vehicle on wheels from cans - "second model"

You can rest assured that when you tell your child that, after returning home, you will make with him another "bank rover", and completely different from the first, his curiosity will have no limit. "What else did his beloved and so clever dad think of?" (or grandfather, he can do this too if you have grandchildren!). The second is more complicated, but also very simple in general. It is necessary to make four pentagons out of polystyrene so that the sides of each are equal to the diameter of the bottom of the packaging jar you have chosen. You can also cut small triangles to attach them cross to cross! The axles are again thick polystyrene knitting needles or metal tubes. Case - polystyrene box. Cabin - rectangular can of sour cream. That, in fact, is all!

We glue the jars to the pentagons, attach the pentagons to the axes - and our "bank vehicle" is ready. Although you can still paint it with an autosilver from a spray can. It looks absolutely fantastic. Moreover, its design is modular. If you make eight pentagons, then you can get double wheels, which will increase the smoothness and ... entertainment of the model. And if you put not four wheels, but six? Yes, at school, when in the fall they demand a homemade product from your son or grandson for the competition, everyone just gasps at this, and the first place (if they have places) will be provided to him. And it’s very easy for a child to make such a “miracle”: “Dad only cut out the pentagons, and I glued it all together and connected the wheels in two rows; and then he painted everything from a spray can! " And even the most envious kids in his class can fully believe in this.

Toy soldiers and cannons


It is well known that children love to play toy soldiers. Make a few exemplary ones, mold them into vixint and ... print them in dozens, and maybe even hundreds of plastic. The main thing is to cure and paint them well. It is best to use bright acrylic paints and then varnish them. White Austrians, red and white British and blue and white French, black and gray Germans and green and white Russians will allow you to successfully fight the battles of the 1812 war both at home on the floor (in inclement weather!) And in your country house.


These are these plastic soldiers. As you can see what they are made of - you can't tell right away!

But it's not interesting to play just like that. It is advisable to shoot at the soldiers. You need guns, the tapered barrels of which can be easily made from old, dried brushes, lightly sanding them.


You can just make copies, as in our picture. But you can drill a channel through them, make a piston striker, and make such a gun firing by attaching a Hungarian rubber band to the striker. And instead of shells, use peas painted black


And this is how the wheels are made for field implements. Rims are made of paper, spokes are made of matches, and epoxy resin is poured into the rim for strength

Houses all over the world, but let's start with our mansion ...



"Terem-teremok"

By the way, in addition to packaging cardboard, corrugated cardboard is now on sale, which allows you to make miniature copies of log buildings. For example, this "terem-teremok" has been hanging on the tree for many years. But it is quite possible to build a whole old Russian city out of such houses. Or you can start collecting houses all over the world: from Brazilian favelas to Indian teepees ...


And here is a diagram of its manufacture ...

It is clear that since I am a "boy" myself, the development for boys dominates here. But there is something for girls too. For example, many together with their mothers make embroidered pillows, which is welcome. But ... what if we make it under such a turtle pillow, with a shell made of "plates" made of ... thick ropes? The twisted rope is glued together with some kind of synthetic glue and additionally stitched from the inside with threads. Then it is sewn in its place on the shell, head and paws. Thus, you can make a pillow for pins and ... a large pillow under your head!

And even from ropes!


"So that everyone understands his own maneuver": from everything that is at hand!
Turtle pillow

In general, thick ropes and cords are a godsend for a person with a creative streak. The picture you see shows an element of wall decor, completely covered with cords, and even decorated with patterns made of ropes. To have this at home, however, is very time consuming and expensive. But, let's say, this is how you can arrange the "Rope Bar", where all the interior details in one way or another, including decorative floor vases and "seats" for stools, will be made of ropes. This is unusual, this is new, people will start talking about it, others will want to see - this is how PR becomes completely banal, seemingly to establishments: well, a bar, it is a bar!


Rope Wall and Rope Patterns

So summer is not only a time for relaxation, but also a time for creativity for children and with children!

          Nobody denies ... We had all the sports sections in the regional center ..
          But there was no modeling, in general ... The nearest ship modeling circle was 200 km away ..

              I mean, if you really teach children, then teach correctly. As an example, you can explain to the child that in this case, in the case of an incandescent lamp, the polarity is not fundamental. But the designation on the diagram is important!

            It will not push, because it all costs money, and especially modeling. And if earlier the state allocated money for this, albeit not enough, now it seems to be also allocated, but, but, but there are still a lot of big BUTs. One thing I can say for sure, there will be no money under the lying stone, you have to make noise, shout, speak, etc., in short, move.

          As a child, I found cheap (no more than $ 3 for the largest and most complex) models of the dying Donetsk toy factory. But there were no paints or other chemicals in our area. Now all this is filled up (at the appropriate prices), but there is no time to study.

      This is not for everybody, but it's dead modeling. Airplane out of flight, this is the same crystal vase in a sideboard or slide, whichever is more convenient for you. Better to run a sketchy with the guys and see how their eyes are burning. And if you bring in the spirit of competition, there will be so many emotions, and positive ones.

        You are both right and wrong: everyone modeling has a right to life and its supporters. After all, they have goals different.

        I say this as a person involved in different types. He started with simple gliders, then there were cordless, air combat, timer ones. Until now, he is keen on the bench, there is a pile of boxes, but there is not enough time for assembly (camouflage, decals). Relatives scold and demand to sell. When I collect the next I read a lot about the corresponding aircraft, although I know a lot.

          To each his own, but the result of the construction of any model, even an aircraft, even a tank, even a car, etc., in my opinion, should be a test of its performance, which is impossible in statics by definition.

            To each, of course, his own. Just disagree with you. Why? It is not at all necessary that the result of the construction is a check of the model's performance. Active - yes, bench - no. The result of assembling a working model is the acquisition of labor skills, testing of the assembled model (sometimes participation in competitions), communication in a team and emotions. The result of the bench assembly is a modelcopy a specific aircraft, study of its history, features of use, camouflage and design, both according to the descriptions and according to the assembled model. That is, the result of bench modeling is a deeper study of the history of aviation and specific aircraftthan with other types of aircraft modeling when it comes to aviation. An important advantage of stand modeling is its availability. But can we say that this or that type of aircraft modeling is better? In no case! All have their goals, advantages and disadvantages. And to assert what exactly yours the best business / occupation is simply narrow-mindedness, fanaticism.
            All the best to you and every success! smile

              It's just that you've never built replica flying models. Here it is necessary to collect such information that you never dreamed of on the bench, and not just the history of the creation of a real machine, but also its constructive structure, joining and coloring of sheathing sheets, up to the number of rivets, the kinematics of the action of various mechanisms such as chassis, flaps, bomb bays, device and lighting devices and so on and so on. Even to create an in-flight mechanism for changing the pitch of the propeller. And in isolated cases, as on the copy of the AN-8, it was necessary to create engines where the cylinder axis and the crankshaft rotation axis were on the same axis. Above this, in my understanding, I can only imagine micromodelism, where a railway train is driven into a tunnel from a human hair. hi

    Unfortunately, many parents (rather almost all) than do it all with their own hands, go and buy something like that.
    The problem is that many people always have a shortage of time, and to work with a child it is necessary sooooo much.
    It's just that in childhood we ourselves invent and build something, the parents had their own problems, to provide the family with everything necessary. So it was then, especially in the countryside.

      Exactly. You can suggest, give paper, glue, scissors, a knife, a piece of foam. Now the foam is "ceiling" and glue "Titan". Great for many things. Waterproof. Dries quickly. Do not shout that "littered". Do not under any circumstances grab "Let me do". You need to evaluate and praise. Better to let it be a clumsy craft, but his own. And your cuts and splinters.
      And to the author .... Dear Vyacheslav, Your toys for children are complicated. They will not sit down out of habit. And adults will do it - there will be no sense. Well, maybe a dollhouse for a girl. And then - the frame. Let "furniture and carpets" itself.

          On the contrary. Do not climb and praise. And if you do with him, he will not be able to repeat at this level. Then you will get a "beat off taste". He himself has to go from clumsy to "and me, too, do this."

        As a grandfather, I have much more time than when I raised my sons.
        Every second day off we have a granddaughter (5), for 3 days.
        I don’t sew dresses with her, we do it in the garage. Together we built a birdhouse, a hotel for insects, cut out figures with a jigsaw, plant vegetables. And that's not all, depending on the weather we walk, look at all kinds of animals and insects, etc.
        I'm glad I managed to instill in her curiosity.
        Now I began to teach the game of checkers, later chess will come.
        She spends more time with me than with her grandmother.
        And I was not attached to my soul, this does not mean that I love other grandchildren less, just when they were younger I worked, got tired, and sometimes there was just less time for them.

          Woo-oh-oh-t! And I have a daughter even now, when she is over 40, she says that dad wanted a son, and therefore I am a jack of all trades. Now it is repeated with the granddaughter. She plays chess, collects rumbboxes, makes jewelry from beads and sculpts from plastic ... Now I will teach her to shoot. We will go to the shooting gallery and go to the club. And my daughter remembers: I'll come home from work in the evening ... "I'm so tired ...". She will wait and say, "Dad, are you not so tired to work out with me?" And dad, gritting his teeth, went to play, read, tinker. Now I see the result! I foresaw it, but it turned out that in reality it is even more pleasant ...

    Thanks to the author for the idea of ​​imitating log walls on corrugated cardboard crafts. In an extreme craft for my granddaughter, I was tortured to cut barbecue skewers.

      You should have seen how he walked on the sand ... It's all from my TV shows and books. It was like this: there is a 30-minute TV program. I have to assemble a homemade product, something interesting to tell. And that would go. And live. Not on record. Then, of course, the script turned into an article, a photo of a homemade product - into a drawing, and an article - into a chapter in a book. By the way, they went to Penza from 1980 to 1990. And in Samara from 1985 to 1989. Moreover, the publishing house Enlightenment, for example, demanded a photo of all the proposed homemade products. And the artist too ... Like, how am I going to draw? Let's take a photo ...

        Robert Sheckley also wrote one of his best stories "live", being a "guest" of the program and being distracted by two presenters for direct communication.

          Didn't know that, Anton. But ... "live broadcast" is so cool that someday I'll write about it. Although "on record". There were still those miracles! Specificity of TV ...

            The story is called "Insert cotter pin A into hole B", in Russian interpretation.
            As for TV, I have no such experience. I hope in three weeks I will try the role of a guide.

    Postpone until the new baby or throw it away, so as not to clutter up the apartment? Not.
    Undoubtedly !!!
    Nowadays I have to build a model of a non-destructible structure, literally, on my fingers. Cubes would really help.
    There are other, more highly artistic stories about cubes ...

      Anton, especially for you as a builder. When my granddaughter Zlata was a little girl, we had a popular game: build a tower with a minimum base area and maximum height, one meter, one and a half, two ... All her toys were used: blocks, building materials. Somewhere there is a photo - it is next to such a tower, and that one is much higher. And then a push and ... the tower collapsed. It was a very entertaining and dramatic game. So, if you wish and imagination, everything is possible! She now remembers those towers at the age of 18.

    We need some things below:
    - Useless and possibly already non-working mobile;
    - Useless and old toothbrush;
    - Equipment for soldering;
    - Screwdriver;
    - A piece of thread;
    - Double sided tape;
    - battery, with operating voltage - 3 V .;
    - short piece of flexible wire ...


    We dismantle it carefully, namely the vibration motor
    :


    We take any useless brush and cut off a segment of the handle from it:

    Putting it all together to get this micro-sized device ... good

      It is a pity that he is uncontrollable. You need 4 brushes, a platform, two motors and a control unit for two "back and forth" switches. and such "robots" can play football on the table.

        at the age of 9, his older brother taught me how to make a clothes brush: two "Gnome" engines, there were such Soviet engines in models of lunar rovers and planetary rovers, on a wired control panel, an eccentric from an eraser was put on the shaft, two wires across with micro-toggle switches and in front there were also two "limit switches", they changed the poles ... providing a reverse and a 9 V battery "Krona" direct semi-automatic control, plus a three-position toggle switch turned on / off the left or right vibration motor!

    Great approach to DIY! And children learn to work with their hands and heads.
    My grandchildren received one tank made of wood by me as a gift. And they play with them more often than with government-owned plastic ones from the store. And the old accounts came in handy wassat

    Materials and methods of work are also subject to obsolescence.
    Therefore, for modern children, it is better to make homemade products from modern materials - for example, old gadgets and electronics.
