Pretend you're a giant by making Little People to tower over!

You will need:
  • Newspaper
  • Sticky tape
  • PVA glue
  • Kitchen roll
  • Paint
  • Cardboard box card
Start off by scrunching up a short, fat sausage shape of newspaper.

Hold it together with sticky tape.
Add a small piece of newspaper to the top, to make a neck...
...and on top of that, a ball for a head!

If you like you even can add on another tiny sausage for a nose!
Roll two longer, thinner sausages for legs...
...and two slightly shorter ones, for arms.
Flatten out the ends to make hands.
For feet, cut two footprint shapes from a piece of cardboard box card.

Pad out one side using newspaper, to make shoes...
...then start taping everything together.

Start by attaching the arms to the top of the body for shoulders.
Then the legs...
...and don't forget the feet at the bottom!
You can pose the figure any way that you like - just use plenty of sticky tape!
When you're happy with the pose, you can strengthen the figure.

Do this by mixing up some PVA glue in equal parts with water, and use paintbrush to paste on a layer of small pieces of kitchen roll.
When the figure is covered, leave it to dry.

And when it's dried, you can paint on whichever outfit you fancy and add on final detail with a black pen!
Here are some other pose ideas...

...or just hanging around!

Try it yourself!
