When I started blogging just over a year ago and starting being more aware of other blogs out there, I found a few that really stood out to me. Ginger Snap Crafts was definitely one of those stand out blogs. Do you already know Ginger Snap Crafts? I love her creative ideas and her photography. So…we’re lucky today because she’s here to guest post!!
Hi there! I’m Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts.com, & I am so excited to be over here at Crazy Little Projects! Isn’t Amber just amazing??!! I guess, you already knew that! :) Over on my blog you’ll find cute & simple crafts, recipes & ideas that just about anybody can do! I also have 5 kiddos, so many of my projects are either for them or involve them somehow!
Today I’d love to show you how to make these super fun & easy pool noodle ponies! My youngest daughter went to Cloverbud Camp for 4H, & she came home with one of these guys! Of course, my 3 year old son wanted one, too! So we quickly whipped up another pony just for him. I’m sure you have everything you need to make one of these, too! :)
For this project you’ll need:
- pool noodle
- twine or rope
- googly eyes
- hot glue gun & glue
First you’ll bend your pool noodle on one end. You’ll want to have someone hold it like that for you. (Kids make awesome helpers on this project!) Then you’ll hot glue the felt mane onto the back of the pony’s head. Then you’ll tie a piece of twine or rope around the end of the bent pool noodle. Tie it pretty tight so it will hold nice & snug. I used a pretty long piece of twine, so I would have a little extra to make some “reins” for my kiddos to hold on to.
Then you’ll add some felt ears around the bend of the noodle, and then glue on some googly eyes. Now it’s time to giddy up! Wahoo! :)
My kiddos had a blast riding their ponies through the yard! Yehaw!! :)
Here are some more kid activities that you can find over on my blog!
Thanks for having me over, Amber!
I hope to see some of YOU around blogland! :)
