Do-it-yourself traffic light

Crafting a traffic light with your own hands for children can be an excellent opportunity to master the mosaic creation technique, while unobtrusively repeating the main rules for crossing the roadway.

You can use various materials as mosaic elements balls, eggshell fragments, transparent self-adhesive film, dried flower petals or tree leaves. If necessary, they are easily painted in the right colors after gluing. But the most simple way is to make a traffic light with your own hands from paper of suitable shades - green, yellow or orange and red.

A traffic light in the technique of application of pieces of paper

On a sheet of paper we draw the outline of our traffic light - we circle the prepared object three times with markers of different colors, following the sequence: first green Yam, then yellow, and only then - red.We try to position the circles strictly below each other, as they are located in real traffic lights.

Now fill in the circles with pieces of paper the right color. This is a good workout for kids who are still learning how to match colors with each other and find similarities between different objects.

First, cover the fragment of the circle with glue, then tear off the pieces and glue them. For convenience, you can use self-adhesive curb tape - it is easy to tear off pieces of similar size from it, and fixing does not require using glue.

Application of traffic lights

In the process of working with older children, we repeat the main rules for crossing the roadway: as long as we fill the green circle with pieces of the mosaic, we pronounce that we are allowed to move at this time. Filling the yellow circle, we recall what we should expect when we see this light. Filling red, we recall that at the sight of a red signal we must stand in its place,because cars are driving at this time.

Traffic light made of colored paper and cardboard

The simplest and most visual aid for learning the rules of the road. Make a stick out of brown cardboard. We glue it between two sheets of black cardboard. Glue colored circles.

We will play with this traffic light, so we needed to make a handle for it.To do this, we made holes in the side parts of the box, and tied a rope behind the bottom.

Paint the cardboard roll in black or wrap it with black paper. We paste on it a yellow, red and green circle. We connect two black sheets of paper with a stapler, in one of which three holes are made.

Traffic light with moving parts of paper

Very visual aid to study the rules of the road traffic light becomes from moving parts. In the inner side of the craft there are three colors - red, yellow and green.Double-folded black cardboard is connected to black circles with a movable handle. Using the pen, we can close those colors that we do not need at the moment.

For example, the traffic light "shows" red.

And the traffic light “shows” yellow.
