(i) Pictures to chalk and paint.
Pictures in bold outline and with no shading should be chosen.
Coloured (a) crayons, (b) chalks (P.N.E.U., 11d. a box). Brushes. Jars of primary colours (P.N.E.U., 1/3 each); large, free paintings on sheets of newspapers which may be whitewashed if desired. Woolworth's and other shops sell books with large outline drawings suitable for filling with flat washes.
Little children are apt to mix up all the colours in a painbox. At first it may be better to get tubes of watercolour paint in the primary colours, and one good brush and squeeze out about a quarter of an inch of each colour on to a large dinner plate. Then the child can make rainbows without spoiling the main supply. Thick chalks are easier to use.
(j) Simple Crafts; materials, tools.
101 Things for Little Folks to do (Batsford 7/6).
Cutting out and pasting:--Old catalogues, Christmas Cards, wallpaper samples, pictures. Cut-out figures, etc., pasted on to thin cardboard, coloured paper shapes on to white or brown paper, to make patterns and pictures. Simple scrapbooks with folded sheets of brown paper. Shadow silhouettes cut out in paper and coloured.
Paper-tearing:--in any suitable gummed or ungummed paper. Torn newspaper silhouettes of boats, teddy-bears, etc., can be pasted on newspaper and coloured.
Sewing cards:--can be made by tracing figures from nursery rhyme books on to post cards, painting them and piercing holes for the threads. Woolworth's coloured cottons and various mending threads and wools can be used.
Coloured beads, blunt scissors, large needles, coarse cottons and wool, coarse canvas. Raffia for weaving in and out on canvas or for covering cardboard shapes. Dishcloth cotton is unrationed. Woolworth's and other shops sell scraps useful for toy-making. Carpenter's tools. Simple match-box boys.
Bowl or bath indoors and small pond outdoors, for sailing boats and rafts. This produces ingenuity in the matter of voyages and the invention of cork boats with paper sails, plasticine passengers.
Children should be allowed to "help" in house and garden. They can employ themselves beside a grown-up. The can help clear away and set places for a meal. They can have their own garden plot to dig in and should help in looking after animals.
[A "Box Holdall," for keeping each child's materials tidy, is obtainable from the P.N.E.U. Office, 2/.].
