Easy Insect

This  insect won’t take a bite out of you and is easy to make.

Pingpong ball or squeezy lemon juice container


Roll a cardboard tube in foil. Screw up the end on one side and fold into the tube on the other.

Cut out the wings and glue onto the foil covered tube.

Glue or tape in a ball for the head.
