Wild About Learning


Materials

  • Fuzzy yarn, various colors
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Paper clips
  • 10 millimeter googly eyes

Directions

  1. Cut pieces of yarn into six inch long strands and place them in a pile on top of each other until you’ve got a fairly thick pile.
  2. Pick up the pile of yarn and string one end through the top of the paper clip.
  3. Using the glue gun (and parental guidance!), put a small amount of glue on the top of the paper clip. Then, fold the yarn in half over the top of the paper clip, forming a pom pom.
  4. Take one piece of cut yarn and tie it around the pom pom to form a head and hair.
  5. Glue googly eyes onto the head portion of the yarn. 
  6. Use your wild thing to mark your place in your favorite book.
