The dove is a well-known city bird that lives in our area, does not fly anywhere even in winter, children know it well. These birds are often depicted in paintings, postcards, wedding albums. Doves made of paper can decorate a room or office space. The image of this bird is used when decorating the premises for the Great Victory Day, February 23, May 1. A dove of peace can be attached to a card dedicated to World Children's Day.
In the article, we will consider several different options for making this beautiful bird from thick sheets. You can make a voluminous dove out of paper and hang it on a thread or fishing line in a kindergarten group or school class. We will tell readers in detail how to fold a bird from a sheet of paper according to the schemes. Different pigeons are made using the origami method. Let's start with a simple job that older preschoolers can handle.
The easiest option
Paper dove, as inThe photos below are taken in two ways. The body of the bird is drawn on a white sheet of A4, spread out in length on the table. You can give the children a template made of cardboard. The guys trace the contours of the dove with a simple pencil and carefully cut out the main part of the craft with scissors. The wings of a bird are made by folding the sheet "accordion". To do this, you can use both white paper and colored double-sided. An even strip 1-1.5 cm wide is bent, the fold is carefully smoothed with fingers. Then the sheet turns, and a similar strip is folded in the opposite direction. Do this until the end of the sheet. All folds should be strong and well smoothed, then the wings will look pleated.
A 2-3 cm incision is made in the center of the bird's body. Folded paper is pushed through the incision to the middle. On both sides, the wings are neatly straightened. If you want to decorate a room with such doves made of paper, then you can make a hole in the central part of the body with an awl and insert a nylon thread or fishing line. You can hang birds on a chandelier in the center of the room, on tree branches on the playground of the kindergarten. Originally perform such pigeons on Victory Day and give to veterans.
Some craftsmen want to create a three-dimensional bird, but do not know how to make a dove out of paper. First you need to draw a schematic image, along the contours of which the figure of a bird is subsequently cut out. The pattern consists of two elements. Firstly, this is a body with a magnificent tail, and secondly, spread wings.
Tothe figure was symmetrical, it is more convenient to sketch on a sheet of paper folded in half. A large sheet of A4 is taken for work. On one of the halves, a curve of the head and abdomen is drawn. From below, you need to leave room for the tail (a little less than half the sheet). Feathers are drawn separately, how much will fit in a given area. A small arc is drawn on the fold. It is needed so that when folding the craft, the back seems voluminous.
To draw the contours of the wings, you need to carefully consider the lower part of the schematic image in the photo in the article. The drawing is also made on a sheet folded in half, but it is already placed in length, and not in height, as in the image of the body. In the center of the pattern, a corner is drawn, along the contours of which the paper is then folded.
A dove blank is carefully cut out of paper along the drawn contours. The dotted fold lines are used to fold the sheet, giving the figure volume. The tail curves back and slightly up. Two parts of the head are glued with PVA glue.
The wings are bent along the dotted lines in the center of the pattern and also glued to the flat part of the pigeon's back. The bird is spectacular. It remains to finish the small details: paint the beak, glue the eyes. Such a craft can be placed on a sheet of cardboard by attaching the base in the tail area to PVA glue.
Flying dove (origami)
The art of origami has become very popular in our country recently. Many fell in lovefold a sheet of paper, creating objects, animals, fish, birds. The masters of needlework did not ignore the origami paper dove. There are many ways to make crafts, you can’t remember all the tricks right away, so novice craftsmen use a schematic step-by-step explanation of the work. It is enough to carefully consider the picture and alternately fold a sheet of paper into the desired position.
To make a dove figurine out of paper with your own hands, prepare a square sheet of any color. These birds have a variety of feather colors, so you can make a whole colorful flock of birds.
The square turns to the master at an angle and the workpiece is folded in half diagonally. Then the action is repeated. You should get a right-angled triangle, as in the picture at number 3. This is necessary to indicate the central fold. Then the workpiece is turned back, and the lower strip is bent upwards by 2 cm.
Then the sheet is turned to the other side and the corners of the front of the triangle are folded down. The workpiece is again rearranged so that the corners of the trapezoid are directed up and down, as in Figure No. 8.
The craft is bent in half down, then the wings of the dove rise up. It remains to bend a tiny corner on the bird's head. This will be the beak. The craft is ready. If the paper is thick and the folds were carefully ironed during work, then origami can be used both for creating pictures, decorating a room, and for playing children.
Next optionThe origami of this bird is similar to the image of a dove of peace. This bird is always drawn in flight, with a twig in its beak. The tail is located below, and the two wings are turned back. How to assemble origami according to the scheme, described in detail earlier, we will not repeat. The assembly diagram is given below in the photo.
The only thing you should pay attention to is that the scheme is not given under the numbers of the sequence of work, but is marked with a solid line. Actions are performed sequentially, starting from top to bottom. Do not forget that the work will look neat only when all the folds are well smoothed out. It is better to take thick paper for work, as a thin craft will not hold its shape, and the figure of the bird will fall to its side.
As you can see, making paper crafts with your own hands is not at all difficult. The main thing is to want to learn something new. Involve your children in manual labor. This will be useful to them during their studies at school. After all, work on such crafts brings up accuracy, diligence, attentiveness and concentration. Children learn to navigate in space, to think and plan. Happy learning!
