You will need:
2 paper plates (head)
green (legs) & black (pupils) construction paper
green & pink paint
2 cotton balls - (eyes)
glue & tape
party blow horn - see picture - (tongue)
Cut four strips of green paper, 1 inch wide by 11 inch long, fringe ends (legs). Fold accordion like. Paint the bottom of one plate green and the top of the other plate pink. Let dry and glue together unpainted sides, inserting two legs on each side of plate (see picture). Fold in half to form mouth, pink plate should be inside. Cut hole in center of fold to stick end of horn through, tape into place. Glue cotton balls on outside for eyes. Cut small black circles/squares of paper for pupils, glue onto tip of cotton ball.
Once all is dry, let kids blow the horn!
I got this idea from my daughters school! I hope I explained it well.
