Rainbow Yarn Zombies

Summary:

Making these little zombies is simple for older children and – with a little adult assistance – can be easily done by younger kiddos as well.

What You Need:

  • styrofoam ball
  • 4 pipe cleaners (chenille stems)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • googly eyes
  • scrap fabric
  • yarn (we used rainbow colored yarn but any yard will do)

What You Do:

Poke two chenille stems into the styrofoam ball.
