How to Make a Twig Reindeer by Sam

Guest blogger today is DS2, Sam, aged 9! Enjoy this Christmas decoration...

How To Make A Twig Reindeer.

You will need:

·         Two ‘y’ shaped twigs to make the legs

·         One long, thin straight twig to make the body

·         One thick, long ‘l’ shaped twig to make the neck and head

·         Two spikey twigs to make the antlers

·         2 metres of string for tying

  1. Lay out all the pieces so the parts can be seen.

2. Get the two ‘y’ shaped pieces for the legs and the body piece and use string to join the legs to the body.

3. Carefully tie the head piece to the legs and body.

4. Put the antler pieces on the head and tie them on. Two people need to do this job. One person will hold the antlers and the other person will tie the string.

 5. That is how to build a twig reindeer just like this!

Can't claim to have invented this myself - someone told me how to do it and they had got it out of a book! But it is pretty cool, isn't it?
