  • Pink Pipe Cleaner (1/2)


    1. Paint both paper plates pink, and leave to dry
    2. Adults: Cut the edge off one of the paper plates to create a smaller circle. Cut an oval nose shape, 4 leg shapes and 2 ear shapes from the construction paper (use a large popsicle stick as a guide to create the leg shapes, and cut triangles for the ears). Draw 2 black nostrils in the center of the nose.
    3. Adults: glue the nose, eyes and ears to the smaller circle (head) Now glue the head on the larger plate (body) placing it about half an inch from the edge. Glue one leg on each side, and two legs at the base of the larger plate. Finally punch a hole in the top of the larger plate, thread the pipe cleaner through the hole and twist to secure, bend into a curly shape.
