Lucky for me, a while back I made a list of suggestions of what to make with Model Magic and on that list was puppets. That would be cute! As I started to demonstrate building the Model Magic around my finger, I began to realize that when I took it off my finger, it would collapse. Not good..... Then I remembered that I had those little medicine cups that someone donated! Oh YEAH!
I purchased class boxes that included the following colors: red, yellow, blue and white. For some reason I always have lots of yellow left over-so that's what we used.
I love them and can't wait to see how they finish them!
Now for the project that I'm doing that requires the bottles- PENGUINS!
SNOWMEN! AND CATS! Oh my!
Prep work: remove the label
hot glue down to cardboard (helps to balance and name is written on the bottom)
tape over the opening (to have a surface to put the Model Magic)
for Snowman-poke holes (I use the point of a compass) for pipe cleaner arms
Step by step for the snowman-
