Instructions

    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.
