Plastic Bag Horse

Materials


2 plastic bags, preferably in 2 different colors.
Crumpled newspaper for stuffing
Cellotape
Permanent pens/markers
Scissors


Instructions

Stuff one corner of the plastic bag with egg shaped crumpled newspaper to form the horse’s head.

Tighten the nose area with a ring of cellotape.

Secure the head and form the neck with cellotape.

Form another crumpled newspaper egg and stuff the plastic bag in the place the body should be (which is right behind and slightly under the neck).

Secure and form the body with Cellotape.

If you have some unsecured plastic bag left- divide it to 4 and form it into legs with Cellotape. If not- use half of the second plastic bag for this purpose.

Cut what’s left of the second plastic bag into strips and stick them with cellotape for the mane and tail.

Draw the eyes and mouth with your permanent pens.

Good luck!

Creating unique crafts from cheap materials at home is a nice idea and it shows our love for our children. But the parents should find for themselves a hobby, like fishing, collecting different items and so on, to have a personal time for themselves. Everything can be transformed into a hobby if that person does that activity from love and in his spare time. For instance, the stamp collectors find a lot of excitement in their activity, finding rare stamps for sale at a decent price is quite an accomplishment for them.

The method is good and simple to make. We tried making other type of animals for our kids like the cow, elephant etc. Later I personally did some superior paper writing service on these kind of paper toys and kept online sales. I got very good responses from other sites too.
