It is autumn and acorns, pine cones, sticks and various seeds are available outside. These are some wonderful illustrations instructing on how to make toys from found natural materials. (Поделки из природных материалов)

Yes, I remember making little things out of pine cones, acorn, leaves, and matchsticks. Cute! I bet these would sell really well at hipster art fairs these days smile

Thanks for the rush of nostalgia! I remember getting issues of "Miś" ("teddy bear") as a kid...little monthly magazines for kids that were full of these great craft projects. I wonder if they used the same illustrations as the ones you posted above, because they looked very much the same! If only I could find those magazines now. I'm pretty sure my parents threw them out :( ...and a quick search on ebay was fruitless.

I am not sure where illustrations come from. i found them on random Russian blogs and google search but they do look like they are from one magazine/book.
