Paper Cup Horse

    What You'll Need:

    Small Paper Cup, Paint, Paintbrush, Scissors, Toilet Paper Tube, Popsicle Sticks, Glue, Felt, Small Pom Poms, Fringe

      Make It:

      1. Paint paper cup completely. Let dry and add a second coat. Next, parents should cut 2 pairs of slits about 1 ? inches apart on both ends of the toilet paper tube for legs.
      2. Use glue to attach Popsicle sticks all around the tube, making sure not to block the slits. Insert Popsicle-stick legs into the slits and secure with a dab of glue.
      3. Cut 2 1/2-inch felt triangles for ears. Glue cup about an inch from the end of the tube, then attach ears, pom-pom eyes, and fringe for the mane and tail.
