Flying mini beasts

Flying mini beasts

We were wanting something fun and really quick to make and thought we would make some mini beasts. We have had an invasion of flying ants into our lounge, so decided to make ants first. We had some old fashioned wooden clothes pegs and some coloured pipe cleaners so the idea kind of originated from there.

Materials

  • Wooden clothes pegs – old fashioned type
  • Coloured pipe cleaners
  • Stick on googly eyes
  • Plastic bags
  • Scissors

How we made them

  1. We threaded pipe cleaners through the clothes pegs threading through about a third of pipe cleaner through one side
  2. We then wrapped pipe cleaner round one side of peg and threaded back through peg
  3. Pull pipe cleaners in opposite direction to secure onto peg
  4. Continue for number of legs required
  5. If adding wings, cut out of plastic bags
  6. Thread wing into clothes peg
  7. Add on pipe cleaner leg – this will help secure wings into plage
