Name:​
Paper Spring Dog
Objectives: Creativity and Fun, General Knowledge, Motor Skills
 
 
Resources Needed:
• Construction
• paper (we used 9×12)
• Tape
• Glue stick
• Googly eyes

Method:

Step 1: Pick two colors of construction paper to start with and cut two strips of equal size from each color going lengthwise. You will be taping the strips together to make one long strip. I ended up with one long strip of black and one long strip of white paper. Feel free to pick whatever colors strike your fancy.
 
Step 2: Now it is time to connect the two strips. Glue one strip on top of another until you have an upside-d​own . In my case, I glued my white strip on top of my black strip. Then I folded over the black strip and folded over the white strip over that. You will keep doing this until you have started to make a spring pattern.
 
Step 3: When you get to the end, you can just glue the last ends down. You will be left with something that looks like this which will be the body of your animal.
 
Step 4: Cut some eyes, a nose and a mouth out of construction paper. I used oval shapes for the ears, a circle shape for the nose and an anchor shape for the mouth.
 
Step 5: You will glue those on a larger oval that you have cut out for the head. Since we were making a black and white dog, I used white construction paper for the head and black paper for the facial features. Add some googly eyes.

Step 6: Glue the head on one end of the spring.
