Learning Benefits

Garden Gremlins

Jazz up your greenery with these cute homemade cretins. First cut a round or oval shape out of craft foam for the body. Then cut out foam horns and feet. Glue them and a pair of feather wings to the body. Next, glue the body to a chopstick or Popsicle stick, and add a face using glue and glitter. Allow to dry, and stick in the soil of a potted plant.
