I decided I wanted to make these little ninja guys the other day, so on our way back from food shopping, we stopped into Michael's for a few things, one of them being pipe cleaners. However, because I am me, and I left my list in the car, I got everything but the pipe cleaners - plus many things that we didn't need. In my defense, there was a 70% off clearance section of kid craft stuff. Still, the pipe cleaners were kind of necessary.
Lucky for me, I was able to dig some out of a box that we had not yet unpacked since moving eleven months (yikes!) ago.
The link above can explain how to make them way better than I ever could, but we persevered and we read the instructions on the tiny screen of my phone and we made them, these little ninjas, and some ninja-ettes too. We also may need reading glasses now from squinting at the phone, but that's a whole other blog post.
They were very cute and very doable for a seven-year-old, with mommy's help.
She's cute, no?
I think the most exciting part for the kids was when I let them use a sharpie (!) to draw the faces on the heads. Who knew a sharpie could generate such excitement?!
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
