Let’s say you’ve only got a few minutes to whip something up. We don’t have time for donuts and syrup!
Have you considered an octopus?
One Creative Mommy glued googly eyes onto a pom pom ball, then glued that ball onto a bobby pin (you might want to use hot glue for that). She twisted eight pipe cleaners around pencils to make them sproingy.
Then she bunned the hair, pinned it, and twisted the twisty legs all around. Once the glued dried, she added that head and was done!
