Time: 10 mins
Age: Little kids to big kids
Difficulty: Easy peasy
You will need:
- Green pipe cleaners
- Wooden lollipop sticks
- Green acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Googly eyes
- White card
- Black Sharpie
Step 1: Paint your lollipop sticks
Paint the lolly sticks in green paint.
We used acrylic paint, which covers the wood well.
You may need to do two coats.
Step 2: Make the legs
Cut one green pipe cleaner in half. Place one of the pipe cleaners near the top of your lolly stick.
Wrap it round the stick and twist it at the back, leaving the two ends sticking out.
These will be your croc’s legs.
Do the same and wrap another pipe cleaner towards the near end of the stick to make the back legs.
Step 3: Get wrapping
Wrap green pipe cleaners all along the lolly stick in between the two legs.
You might need two or three pipe cleaners to cover the whole area.
Leave the top and bottom areas of the stick clear.
Step 4: Make the croc’s sharp teeth
Cut a small rectangle of white card. Glue in onto underside of the front of your lolly stick.
Now use scissors to cute little zig zags all along the edges to make your croc’s teeth.
Step 5: Add the eyes and nostrils
To complete your croc, glue on two googly eyes and draw on two nostrils with a black Sharpie.
Enjoy your cool lollystick crocs!
