Your kids will love creating these little characters. When they're dry, they'll have loads of imaginary fun too!

What You Need:
What You Do:

In the center of the worktable, place material scraps that have been cut into small scraps, about 2-3 times the width of the craft stick. Give each child a craft stick and 2 wiggle eyes. Allow the children to glue the wiggle eyes onto the craft stick, leaving enough room above the eyes to glue hair or a hat in place.

Place a dot or two of glue on the front of the craft stick, place material scrap on top of glue. Secure in place and wrap around the stick, gluing in place at the back of the stick. Show the children how to wrap their material around their sticks and glue in place. You can use ribbon to create a belt by simply gluing a small strip of ribbon around the center of the craft stick. You cn use the marker to draw on lips and a necklace.
