Time: 45 minutes to 1 hour
- Cover the cardboard tube with white paper for the clown's body.
- Draw and cut arms and hands from white paper. Decorate these with marker.
- Glue the ends of the arms to the back of the clown's body so the hands stick out to the sides.
- Draw and cut clown feet from poster board or cardboard. Glue the clown's body to the feet.
- Glue a plastic egg inside the top of the clown's body for the head.
- Glue a fabric trim or crepe paper streamer ruffle to the clown's body just below the head and just above the feet.
- Glue a few pieces of shredded paper or yarn to the top of the egghead for hair, and glue the larger pom pom on top of the hair for a hat.
- For the face, glue on the small pom pom for a nose, a piece of fabric trim for the mouth, and wiggle eyes. The mouth and eyes can also be made from paper.
- Allow all glue to dry completely.
To play, stand your clown up on a table, stand back, toss a ball at him, and try to knock him off his feet. How good is your aim?
