Popsicle stick ballerinas
Get your ballerina craft on with these tiny dancers made out of popsicle sticks and cupcake wrappers.
What you need:
- 1 x popsicle stick
- 1 x cupcake wrapper
- 1 x pipe cleaner (trimmed to 12cm)
- small piece of string or ribbon (for the bow)
- black marker pen
- red marker pen
Number of players:
Fold the cupcake wrapper in half and flatten it out.
Glue the flattened wrapper onto the popsicle stick: leave enough space for legs at the bottom and for a body at the top.
Now get your pipe cleaner and twist it into place for the arms (see video).
Draw on some feet, eyes, a mouth and hair.
Tie a small bow in the piece of string. Glue it to the top of the ballerina’s head.
Your tiny dancer is ready to dance.
