Alien frogYou will need:

  • paper or card
  • straws
  • craft cord (bought from Hobbycraft)
  • sticky tape and glue stick

4. Paint some grey paint splodges on the body and face.

5. Cut out some eye shapes using the card, and stick onto the head using the glue stick.

6. Cut 5cm lengths of the straw – this will be used to thread the craft cord for the legs.

7. Stick 3 pieces of straw to the back of the frog.

8. Thread three different lengths of the craft cord through the straws and stick the feet at each end using some sticky tape.

9. Use the black felt tip to draw on a mouth.
