These little hedgehogs are so cute! To prepare the craft I cut some pipe cleaners (or fuzzy sticks, if you prefer – we received ours from craftprojectideas.com) into small pieces using some wire cutters. Please don’t use scissors when cutting pipe cleaners!Pipe Cleaner Hedgehog Craft - an easy animal craft for kids to make

Then I set out some googly eyes (again, these were sent to us by craftprojectideas.com) and some play dough. Actually this made me reminisce because I first started making homemade play dough for my son four years ago – and he really didn’t like it at first! When he got to like it he was never a play dough mixer – each color always stayed separate or would be discarded. These days, though, it isn’t quite like that. I thought we had loads of brown play dough from his Chuck & Friends Tonka Play-Doh set but it was all rather mixed in with other colors.

I managed to find some browny-pink dough and some orangey-yellow – and that was the best I could come up with for a hedgehog body! I shaped them into a vague hedgehog shape. First we added the eyes, then started adding the spikes to its back.Pipe Cleaner Hedgehog Craft - an easy animal craft for kids to make

 

He asked if they would dry and we could keep them but I think he was confusing the play dough with air dry clay – but I might keep the pipe cleaner spikes and we could make a clay hedgehog craft next time!
