Halloween II: Spooky Roly-Poly Doll

 

StehaufmännchenHalloween is almost here. Meanwhile, many big people find lots of ideas for this spooky festivity on the Pelikan website. But there are some great ideas for the little ones, too!

With little effort, old ping-pong balls become small, scary roly-poly dolls that will go back to their former position, as if by magic, when you tip them lightly - a creepy fun for kids!

This is what you need:

Download template, ping-pong balls (old ones are perfectly suitable!), Wonderliner, play dough (e. g. Creaplast), pointed scissors and some glue.

 

This is how it works:

Schritt 1 und 2

Carefully cut a small hole of the size of a finger into the ping-pong ball.

Schritt 3
Now stuff as much of the Creaplast play dough into the hole, until half of the ball is filled. Push the play dough down tightly, so that it doesn't get out of place, later on.

 

Schritt 4

Color the ping-pongballs with Wonderliners.

Schritt 5

To make the pumpkins look really spooky, turn them into Jack O'Lanterns by drawing scary faces on them with a black Wonderliner.

Now comes the hat of the roly-ploy doll. Print out the template and glue it together to the shape of a cone

Finally, color the hat competely in black, using the Wonderliner. Glue the hat onto the ping-pong ball, so that it hides the hole on the top.

Now the spooky roly-poly doll is ready to be tried out: If the roly-poly doll is placed on any desired spot and touched lightly, it will go back to its former position as if by magic - a spooky fun!
