No tree house would be complete without a pet, so tonight we are making a pet using pipe cleaners. Your pet can be an indoor or outdoor pet, use your imagination and I can't wait to see what you come up with. These pets are perfect because they require no feeding and make no messes or noise. These animals are made by using one pipe cleaner for the body and one for the head. For the rest of the animal you can use pieces of pipe cleaner or scraps of paper.
Your pet can be a stand alone pet, you don't have to have it on a card, it will be your option

Materials:
Pipe Cleaners
Small pieces of pipe cleaners, scrap pieces of paper.
Marker
Glue
Scissors

Instructions:

1. Make a loop in the middle of the pipe cleaner. Size and shape will depend on the size and shape of the head. Start from the neck and go to the nose.

2. Coil another pipe cleaner around a marker if the marker is thicker the body will be bigger, if it is thinner the body will be smaller. After coiling slide the pipe cleaner off the marker.

3. Slide the body over the backbone (second half of pipe cleaner used for the head).

4. Cut pipe cleaner for legs and slip over tail, twisting to secure.

5. Slip front legs behind first coil and twist to secure.

6.Unfold one ear, slide through the top of the head, and shape as desired. Bend pipe cleaner for tail, paws, etc. Cut face from scrap paper and glue to attach.

7. Use scissors to trim any areas where needed and add any special marking
using a permanent marker.

There are some pretty cool PC pets being posted so it should be pretty easy to copy for the kids.
Pipe cleaners are so inexpensive and not very messy, plus the kids would have a blast playing Zoo !

resqbarbie 09-07-2007 03:47 PM
