Such a bat and a small wooden siskin, similar to a pencil, will be needed by your children to play the Russian folk game Siskin. If you are not yet familiar with this game, then be sure to read the rules and tell your child about this addicting game to be played outside.
It is necessary
- - wooden plank
- - wooden block
- - knife or saw
- - sandpaper
- - pencil or felt-tip pen
Choose a board of a suitable size, length 70-90 cm and width 12 cm. Then we cut out with a saw or cut out the handle with a knife, marking the outline with a pencil. The handle should be 10 cm long. We round the corners with a knife and smooth them with sandpaper so that the children do not get hurt when they play. You can cut a bat in a very simple shape.
For a siskin, take a small block 8-12 cm long and 2-3 cm wide. Gently sharpen both ends with a knife like a sharpened pencil, but not very sharply. In order to prevent the sharp ends from breaking off when hitting the fish with a stick, and when catching it, the guys do not injure their hand. Draw numbers from one to four (Arabic or Roman) on each face with a pencil or felt-tip pen.
If the child has the skill of working with a knife, then he can cut out the numbers on the edges of the siskin - they will be more durable than the ones drawn.
