Pipe Cleaner Critters

Pipe Cleaner Critters {via Octavia and Vicky}

I have been very lucky to have some wonderful teachers in my life, both as a child as an adult. This little craft always reminds me of one of my favourite years in primary school. Year 3, in the class known as “3BC”. I was turning eight, it was 1986 and life was good. Miss Cosh and Mr Bentley were a big part of that.¬†While pipe cleaner critters are probably not the best representation of their teaching awesomeness, they are a little reminder for me of how happy I was that year. Here’s how we made them.
