Hobby animals are great fun to create, as they can become part of your story and even be the star of the show. The focus of making a hobby animal is to immerse yourself into a magical world and produce a great creature. This allows children to better understand their craft skills, nature and their environment.
- Double Sided Tape
- Buttons/Wool/Natural Materials
Stuff a sock with scrunched-up newspaper or straw. Choose an animal to make (this might depend on the colour of the sock) and then mould a stuffed sock to the right head shape.
Push a long sturdy stick into the sock and tie the end of the sock to the stick. Use double sided tape to attach seed eyes, leafy ears and a twig mouth to bring your animal to life. You could add twig antlers or a stick horn/tusk. Explore the woods on your hobby animal!
Wash your hands after the activity.
