Wink Backpack Buddies

What You Need


Cardboard
Pen or pencil
keychain or backpack clip
plastic jewelry cord
2 large foam circles (about half dollar size)
Scissors
White craft glue
Wiggle eyes
Feather boa or yarn


WHAT YOU DO

Using one of your foam circles, trace a circle onto the cardboard and cut out. Cut the cardboard circle a little smaller than the foam circle, so cut within the lines you traced rather than on the lines.

Have a grown up poke a hole near the middle of the cardboard circle with scissors or a pen.
Cut a piece of jewelry cord about 12-inches long.
Thread the cord through the hole in the circle.
Line up the open ends of the cord and loosely tie knot with the keychain or backpack clip in the knot.
Glue the foam circles to the cardboard circle, one on each side of the cardboard. This will hide the plastic cord and the hole.
Line up the foam circles so they are even with each other, and apply slight pressure to flatten them close together.
Glue wiggle eyes on to the front of a foam circle.
Cut a piece of feather boa about an inch or so long.
Apply white glue to the top of the “head”.
Glue feather boa to the top of the “head”.
Let dry completely.

Helpful hints:

You can glue wiggle eyes to both sides of the foam circles so that the face is reversible.
Check out the yarn aisle for colorful, fuzzy and wacky textures.
Add even more character by using a small colorful foam oval as a nose or adding two small white rectangles as buck teeth!
