CD Beaver

 

Instructions to make a beaver out of old Cds.

Materials Needed:

  • 2 CDs
  • Cardboard (from a cereal box, etc)
  • Felt and/or Construction Paper
  • Pom-Poms
  • Yarn
  • Glue

Instructions:
Cut out 2 circles from the brown felt or construction paper the same size as the CDs (it is easiest to trace the CDs). Glue the brown circles onto one side of each of the CDs, covering the one side completely.

For the face of the beaver: Use the felt or paper, pom-poms, and yarn to cut out the beaver's facial features. You can cut out ears and eyes using felt or paper. Make a nose from a pom-pom, and a mouth using yarn. Don't forget the teeth! Glue these onto the felt or paper covered side of one of the cds.

 

For the back of the beaver: Cut a tail shape out of the cardboard. Paint it darker brown or cover it with dark brown felt or construction paper. Glue it towards the bottom edge of the felt or paper covered side of the other cd.

 

Now for the slightly tricky part. Once the glue on the 2 CDs is dry, you want to attach them at the top and at an angle. This will make it so your beaver can stand! Glue the top edge together and make sure the bottom edges are about 3 inches apart. Cut a piece of cardboard about 3 inches long by 4 inches wide. Cover the cardboard with a piece of brown felt or paper with feet shape cut out. Have Fun!

 

Glue the bottom part of the CDS onto the cardboard so the feet stick out the front.
