Then glue the light green paper to the cardboard rolls.

Glue the small roll horizontally on top of the larger roll. 

Cut two arms, two feet and the letter “B” out of the light green construction paper. 

Glue the spine of the letter “B” to the small tube for the eyes. Glue the googly eyes to the letter “B.” Glue the arms to the front of the longer tube.
