Oh No, George! Paper Tube Craft

Inspired by the geometric shapes and the expressive eyes Chris Haughton used in the illustrations of George, this project uses a minimum of materials but has maximum appeal. Set out the supplies and invite your young reader to create a unique version of George.

Why We Like It

  • It uses googly eyes! Yes we know they are only small bits of plastic but googly eyes are pure magic!
  • It's a dog! Do you like dogs as much as we do? Check out our crafts and recipes to go with A Ball for DaisyMcDuff and the Baby, and The Stray Dog.
