Rainy day?  Scorching hot day? If you are in the Rio Grande Valley it may be both.

This is a fun craft you can do with scraps.

 

You will need:

newspaper

masking tape

glue, we used hot glue but tacky glue would work too, just slower

yarn

scissors

other supplies: googly eyes, beads, pom poms, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, buttons

All you need to do is:

Roll or ball up a piece of newspaper into an oval or cone or tube, anything that somewhat resembles the shape of an animal body.

Use tape to secure it.

Wrap in yarn and glue as you go.

Once the body is mostly covered (don’t worry it will look like a blob until you put the little face on. I was going to take a picture but it really didn’t look like anything until I had the whole thing together).

Add details, eyes, ears and mouth, legs and tail.
