How to make it:
- Take one of the brown pieces of paper and cut it into a head shape. Take your black crayon and draw two eyes and a nose.
- Put two pieces of brown paper together. Draw a short little arm with your black crayon. While holding the two pieces together, equally, cut along your black line.
- Put two pieces of brown paper together. Draw a nice size foot with your black crayon. While holding the two pieces together, equally, cut along your black line.

Then, pick up the strip and take the end of the right piece and the end of the left piece and glue one side. Overlapping them, put them together.
