1. Start by cutting up the tissue paper into small squares. For young kids who aren’t comfortable yet with scissors, you can suggest tearing up the tissue paper, instead.

2. Draw a wavy line at the bottom of the paper plate and cut along that line.

3. Glue the tissue paper squares onto the paper plate.

4. Use a hole punch to make several holes along the wavy bottom line of the paper plate.

5. Cut yarn strands of the same length. Thread the yarn through the holes at the bottom of the paper plate and tie them up.

6. Glue the googly eyes onto the paper plate and use a black marker to draw a mouth. For more fun you can use big googly eyes, or glow in the dark googly eyes.
