Last Saturday my little six year old decided he wanted to make a family of flying critters. I pulled out the kid's craft supply box and he looked through it. I suggested wrapping colorful pipe cleaners around a pencil to make the body shape and he figured out the rest.
We couldn't stop with just one because- as we all know- you have to have a family!!! So, we had flying critters all around the house.
We tied a piece of black thread- about 18 inches- to their noses and tied the other end to a toothpick. When you hold on to the toothpick and swing the thread over your head - lasso style- the black thread kind of disappears and you have a fuzzy, flying critter. Aren't six year olds brilliant?!
