You will need

Note: Make sure a grown up helps with scissors and small pieces

To make:

  1. Wrap your yarn around a piece of cardboard.
  2. When you are happy with the volume, cross the pencil through the yarn and carefully take everything off the cardboard. Make sure it all stays neatly together.
  3. Join the cardboard shapes together and wind the wool around them. Keep winding the wool around until it is nice and squishy. Tie a piece of wool around the pom pom between the cardboard to keep everything in place. It helps to wrap the yarn a couple of times.Carefully cut along the wool between the cardboard, holding the centre.
  4. Use your scissors to carefully cut around the edge.
  5. Fluff up the pom pom and trim the ends to shape.
  6. Cut out the head image, and using the patterns, cut out 2 pieces of blue paper for the wings, and 1 piece of blue, red, and pink paper for the feathers.
  1. Now for the finishing touches, glue all the pieces as shown in the picture above.

Tah-Dah! Have fun playing with your new Hennie pencil and stay tuned for more toy craft ideas from the Squirrel Club.
