This was a fun project for me instead of Sophie. Perhaps an older child will enjoy it better as it requires patience and certain dexterity.
strips of aluminium foil
A ball of paper (for the stick man head)
Play dough or blue tac
Take 1 pipe cleaner and make a loop in the center for the head. This piece will make the head and the arms
Take 2 pieces of pipe cleaners for the legs. Use the arms to secure them tightly. Twist the 2 pipe cleaners a few times to make the body.
Put a ball of paper in the loop and start using the strips of aluminium foil to wrap it.
To make it stand, attach balls of play dough and wrap the foil around. It is quite challenging making it stand after a few tries, it will find its equilibrium.
