crafting with kids:  ROPE JAR ANIMALS
Difficulty: Easy (but little ones may require assistance and a watchful eye for the hot glue gun portion) ||  Mess Factor: Minimal
Hot glue gun
Paper cup or glass jar
Additions [get creative here! Pom poms, tassels, pipe cleaners, etc]
1. Choose a jar or paper cup and plug in that hot glue gun of yours to warm up! Gather your supplies
2. Starting at the base of your jar or cup, add a line of hot glue circling around. Quickly apply the rope to the glue
3. Continue the glue and rope all the way around, making sure to have the rope tight together and not leaving gaps
4. Get creative! Add some tassels or poms! You can even add some coloured embroidery thread between the gaps of the rope for a pop of colour.  Try making a bear and adding two Pom Pom ears; the opportunities are endless!
5. Have fun!
