a large, round cereal carton
something to punch holes
Remove the lid from a round cereal carton. Just below the open end, punch a hole in the side of the carton. Punch another hole directly opposite the first. Run a string through the holes and tie the ends. You can now hang the box around your neck. Put the lid back on the carton.
If you wish, you can decorate the cereal box with poster paints. You can also tape the lid to the carton to keep it on.
Use clothespins for drumsticks.

Step 3 Using a #4 pointed round brush and the translucent colors for bisque from the materials list, write the names of different types of pasta on the inside and outside of the bowl. Apply 3 coats of each color for nice rich, deep tones.
Use a #6 pointed round brush to apply 3 coats of Just Froggy to the rim of the bowl.
Step 4 Fire the bowl to cone 06-05 (1830/1915°F-999/1046°C).
