Stick ponies for lil cow pokes. :) My brother had one of these my mom made (crocheted the head) and took it EVERYWHERE - he ended up with his picture in the paper. That was the early 80's. I still have the newspaper clipping - makes me smile. :)
DIY party Ideas... "They cut the head out of butcher paper, added yarn from the dollar store, and stuffed the heads with leftover plastic grocery store bags. Then, they hot-glued in a dowel rod and tied a rope on for the reins. ... We had sticker eyes and mouths that the kids used to decorate their horses.”"
Party craft: stick horses. Here is a horse head template for making and decorating stick horses. Can use yardsticks, empty gift wrap rolls, or wooden dowels for the stick. Cut out two heads, decorate, add yarn mane, stuff with crumpled paper, staple, add stick, viola! Now the kids are ready for stick horse races!
