Various Pom Poms
See the Found Chapter for more instructions, hints, tips, and ideas.
This slide is made from a shell with a cowrie shell inserted into it. Add a couple of wobble eyes and a PVC ring.
You could also start with a pom pom and hot glue eyes to it. Then add a body, nose, ears, legs, whatever else to turn it into a cuddly pal. Let the kids get creative with this one.
If you want, make a home for your pet from a clear bottle (coin collecting bottles work well). Hot glue a PVC ring to the back. You could even write your pet pal's name on his new home.
