1 paper towel tube 

Pink and red construction paper

Googly eyes 

Small red pompom

3 gold and 2 red pipe stems

Black permanent marker

School glue stick 

Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Cut enough pink construction paper to wrap around the paper towel tube. Using the school glue stick, glue the construction paper to the tube.

Cut two strips of red construction paper – long enough to wrap around the tube. Using the school glue stick, glue in place about two-inches from the top and bottom of the tube.

Cut out two small wings from the red construction paper and glue to the back of the tube.

Using the hot glue gun, glue googly eyes and pompom for the eyes and nose.

Draw a mouth with the permanent marker. 

Cut the gold pipe stems in half and hot glue three halves on both sides of the tube for legs. 

Hot glue the two red pipe stems to the inside of the front of the tube for the antennae, and twist ends into desired shape.
