My daughter has a school project. She has to make any animal from ordinary household items. Is there anyone that could give me some easy ideas? She's only in second grade and mom is not so crafty. Thanks!

How about making a snake from empty tin cans. Keep the bottom lid on and punch a hole in it and use string or yarn to attach the cans together. (08/31/2010)
Try a horse from toilet paper roll or deer from clothes pins. Try Google images. (08/31/2010)
I have seen gallon jugs (bleach bottle-rinsed thoroughly) painted pink and the nose (cap painted black). Make a hole opposite the nose and make a tail of yarn. Corks can be used for small stubby legs. You can add magic markers to draw on eyes. (09/01/2010)
Foil molded into the shape of whatever you want is a good start as a base. Paper mache over it or such. It's easy really, just takes some time. Try something easy like a turtle, bird, or snake. (09/02/2010)
How about a sheep from a empty spool of thread and pipe cleaners for legs and cotton balls to fill in the body. Hope this helps. (09/02/2010)
