Materials: Black felt, knit beanie, plastic horn, dust mop, elastic, tan jacket, netural tights, tan shoes

For the Llama Head:
Step 1: Cut eyelashes out of felt and glue them to the top of the knitted beanie. Use rubber bands to form two ears on the top of the beanie. Fill the beanie with stuffing.
Step 2: Paint the plastic horn tan. Once it’s dry, cut the wool fringe off a mop and glue it to the outside of the horn. Punch holes in the sides of the horn and attach strong elastic so that it fits your child’s head.
Step 3: Insert the open end of the beanie into the top of the horn. Glue inside so that it stays in place.
