Another cool, but simple project. We used his plastic army helmet and army men.
I used E-6000 to glue into place, with just a dab of hot glue to secure them until the E-6000 dried.
The best part is that the helicopter rotor spins… I’m sure kids will be bugging him all day!
Now, I’m sure moms of girls are dying to find out how I made the truffala tree, so here you go:
a big rubber band and then several smaller ones (I used rainbow loom bands)
First I twisted a bunch of pipe cleaners together. 5 seemed to be a good number for my daughters hair, but you may need to do a test run to see what works. Bend one end so that it isn’t poking into the scalp all day!
Pull all of the hair into a super high ponytail – try to get it right on top of the head.
Insert the folded portion of the pipe cleaner into the middle of the ponytail.
Make sure it is pushed in as far as possible.
Pull the ponytail up around the pipe cleaner.
I twisted the hair a few times and then secured the top with a small rubberband.
I then added several more bands down the length of the ponytail.
You should now have a Truffala Tree!
You could always mess up the ends or curl the ends so they are poufy!
