Have Fun with Kids!
Just a few twists of chenille stems, and the kids can make these ooh-la-la adorable poodles!
1 Your child folds one chenille stem 1 1/2" from one end and twists it onto itself for one back leg, folds another 1 1/2" and twists again for second leg. She folds 1 3/4" down for body, remainder up for neck. She repeats with another stem for front legs, twists onto body where body and neck join. 2 Your child cuts white stem 1 1/2" for ears, folds in half, then folds ends to center. She folds end of first stem up 1" (neck) then out 1" (head), attaches ears at fold. She twists remaining portion of front leg stem around the body to the back, leaving a 1 1/4" tail. 3 Your child bends ends of legs forward to form paws, twists 6" of white stem around each ankle. She glues 1" pompom to head, 1/2" pompom to tail. She twists the third colored stem around the head, down the neck and onto the body, repeats on the body with the fourth stem to give the poodle its shape. Help her glue on eyes, dot pupils with marker and add 3/16” pompom nose.
