Some THINGS to Help Celebrate Dr. Seuss!
poster board or heavy cardstock for base
red, turquoise, and white paper
string (or embroidery floss)
hole punch, scissors, glue (rubber cement)
brass brads (or smaller craft brads, in red?)
black pen for details
Cut out the template, punch holes, and glue the colored pieces on top of poster board pieces. Assemble by pushing brads through lower holes on arms and legs. With the Thing in arms/legs down position (standing), tie string/floss through top holes of appendages, connecting arms to arms and legs to legs (loose tie is ok). Use a longer piece of string/floss to tie arm string to leg string, and leave a length at bottom for pulling.
Punch a hole in top of Thing's hair to insert loop for hanging. Tie a golden ring (old pirate treasure?) if you like, to the bottom string for easy pulling.
If your Thing's legs/arms get stuck when pulling, try loosening the brads a bit.
