To create freely means to think, make decisions, and act independently. To respect, love and appreciate nature. The Borarti - Create freely! program offers opportunities for children and their parents to help make all of these values an integral part of their everyday lives through a variety of creations, be it a play dough figure, painted pebbles or plant weaving. The leader of the program, who is also the author of the book believes that, children need closeness to nature, an understanding family environment, and plenty of creative creation in today’s performance-oriented world to find themselves and dare to do what they really love.
The book is a great collection of 38 inspiring tasks which are made from recycled materials, household waste, and even treasures collected from nature. From toddlers to adolescents and even adults, the publication is for everyone, as all works can be made at almost any age, only differently. Through our own experiences, we guide the reader into the magical world of free creation, be it at home, outdoors, on the go, with paint, clay, wood, textiles, together or independently.

Paper cup figure
Take out the paper cups and make cup figures. First, examine each other carefully. With your eyes closed, touch each other's faces and reveal what you are experiencing. Afterwards, also examine it with your eyes. Look at the proportions, shapes, characteristics.
In the box you will find a paper cup, which will be the base - the head. Then with the help of the brass fastener you will be able to attach all the other body parts to it. Since you are in nature, it is worth looking around you as well. Look for leaves, sticks, fruits that are suitable to implement the idea. Unleash your imagination, create freely! Let them be funny, caricature-like figures, emphasizing on a specific feature.
Paper plate flowers
The paper plates of different shapes and sizes in the pack provide an exciting base for paper flowers. Before you start creating, it’s worth going out into nature to gather inspiration. Look for flowers in the garden, in the yard, on the street, in the park, in the field, in the woods, wherever you turn up. Take photos of them, and when it comes to creating ideas at home, take out pictures, they can help a lot in creating shapes, colors.
You may want to start drawing with a pencil on draft paper so you can experiment with which shape will work best. Numerous downloadable templates are also available on the Internet, but I recommend that you use them only as a last resort. Rather, rely on yourself, create freely!
It is worth coloring the plate before drawing the shape, because this will make the finished work much smoother. You can work with watercolor, tempera or even acrylic paint, but a crayon or felt-tip pen is also good, it's up to you which one you choose. Choose the one you like to work with best, but you can also experiment, mix techniques. For example, draw patterns with crayons and then repaint them, or draw on the painted surface with a felt-tip pen. Once you have the right shape, you can draw the pattern on the plate and you can cut it out with scissors.
You can make the petals spatial by rolling them up one by one on a pencil. With the brass fastener you can attach several petals to each other: and with the multitude of petals made from several plates, you can create even more wonderful flowers.
To make the paper theater, you will need the Borarti Art Pack suitcase in which you received the materials, but you can look for another box if you would like. Open the box in a standing position towards you and cut out a square shape vertically on the side hand side left. The openable part of the suitcase supports the theater so you can use it easily.
Then comes the real adventure, the play to be written. Cooperate with your friends, your siblings or even the whole family, because working together is even more exciting. Guess the characters, the plot, the venue, give a title to the performance. If you put it all down on paper, make the characters out of the paper cups and then the set as well. Feel free to look for more materials from nature. For example, you can create wonderful wardrobes for actresses from wooden leaves, and make trees, furniture and buildings from sticks and paper. It is up to you to come up with the most creative solutions possible!
Do you have favorite animals? Surely. Make them!
Before you start creating, go out into nature and look for materials for it. Look at the shapes - what does a stick or a pebble remind you of? What shapes are the leaves that face you? Maybe it would come in handy for the creation? Take it home! Collect!
