More fun projects to keep your children happy on inclement weather. Get them to make pencil toppers that look like bugs.

SPIDER:

What you will need:
Black or other colors of pipe cleaners,
1 1/4”” black pompom,
3/4”” googly eyes,
hot melt glue,
a pencil.

What to do:
. Cut four pipe cleaners in half. Fold the halves in half to find the middle. Wrap all pipe cleaners around each other in the centers to form the leg..
. Glue the pompom onto the center of the legs. Bend the end of each leg up so that the wire isn’’t sticking out. Bend the legs to look like spider legs.
. Glue on googly eyes.
. Glue on another color pipe cleaner onto the bottom of the spider in the middle.
. Put some glue on the top of the pencil and stick the spider to the top of the pencil. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the pencil starting at the eraser end of the pencil. Glue the end of the pipe cleaner to the pencil.

LADYBUG:

What you will need:
1 1/2” Red pompom,
3/4”” black pompom,
tiny googly eyes,
black heavy gage florist wire,
black pipe cleaner,
hot melt glue,
needle nose pliers,
a pencil.

What to do:
. Separate the fur on the red pompom as much as possible making a hole in the pompom. Put some glue on the end of the pencil and stick it in the hole. Press the fur of the pompom around the pencil and glue.
. Glue the black pompom on the side (or top) of the red pompom. Glue on googly eyes.
. Cut a small piece of wire and bend down the ends with some needle nose pliers to make the antennae.
. Make two holes in the black pompom. Place a drop of glue on the end of each antenna and press them into the holes. Press the fur around the end of the antenna.

BEE:
What you will need:
Yellow and black pipe cleaners,
3/4”” black pompom,
black heavy gage florist wire,
tiny googly eyes,
hot melt glue,
needle nose pliers,
a pencil.

What to do:
. Fold and black and yellow pipe cleaner in half. Wind the folded black pipe cleaner around the end of the pencil leaving spaces around each turn.
. Wind the yellow folded pipe cleaner around the end of the pencil in between the black pipe cleaner. Push the pipe cleaners up toward the end of the pencil. Glue the down so they stay in place
. Glue the black pompom on top for the head.
. Make antennae the same way you do for the ladybug above. Glue on googly eyes.
. Cut two pieces of yellow pipe cleaners for the wings. Bend them into a wing shape and glue them onto the bee's side.

Have fun!
