Today's Craft: One Very Cool Cow
To make this craft project you will need a paper cup, white tissue paper, tape, a black pipe cleaner, black construction paper, white paper, scissors, glue, and crayons.
To begin, take your tissue paper and cut a long rectangular piece.
Wrap this piece around your paper cup completely covering the outside. Tape or glue the tissue paper so it won't shift.
Flip your cup upside down and set aside. This will be your cow's body.
Next cut out a cute cow face and a small rectangle to make a cow's tail.
You can use your own imagination or the templates provided at the address below.
Cut the cute cow face and small rectangle out of white construction paper.
Fringe one side of the small rectangle vertically by making long vertical cuts side by side into it.
Take your black construction paper and cut a narrow rectangular strip about 3 inches long. This will be your cow's neck.
Also cut out several curvy black cow spots.
Next take your black pipe cleaner and cut it in half.
Wrap the small white rectangle you fringed to the end of the pipe cleaner and tape in place. This will be your cow's tail.
Now let's assemble your cow!
Tape or glue the neck to the back of the cow's face and then tape or glue the other end to the top of the cup (your cow's body)
Use the picture as a guide.
Tape or glue the black cow splotches to the cow's body.
Add the cow's tail to the back of the cow's body.
Now decorate your cow further with crayons.
Add more facial features and decorations, maybe even a cute cow bell.
