What you will need:

Your equipment

Coloured, tissue paper
A toilet roll tube
Cane stick
A square piece of colourful material

Some string
Felt material
Small rubber bands
Two thin wooden sticks

Ask an adult to help you as scissors can be very sharp!



  Step 1
Scrunch up some newspaper into a ball to make the head. Wrap it in sellotape to keep the shape.
Step 2
Make a little hole in the paper with your finger and push the cane end into it. Use plenty of sellotape to secure it to the newspaper head.
  Step 3
Take the coloured tissue paper and cover the newspaper. Secure it neatly with some more sellotape at the bottom of the head.
Step 4
Cut away the rest of the paper and use sellotape to stick down the ends of the tissue paper.
  Step 5
Next, take the square piece of material and fold it in half to make a triangle. Fold it again, then cut a small hole in the top of the fold like this.
