Branch Lizards

Easy and mess-free, that is what I promised my classroom helpers in the kindergarten art class this year. No painting, no gooey clay, nothing fun :(  …..

No, not really – we are having lots of fun. Check out the cute little Branch Lizards …

Pipe cleaners
Sticky dots (cheaper and easier to use than googly eyes – and no glue required)


Wrap yarn around the stick 
Add pipe cleaner legs (wrap a pipe cleaner around, twist, form feet by folding the ends back and forth 3X)

Add tiny sticker dots for eyes and spots if desired
(purchased a pack of 500 for a dollar at the office supply store)

It takes coordination to wrap a stick with yarn, the kids were intensely focused while working on their little buddies.
