    Peg:

    1. Glue the green and blue craft paper around the center of the toilet paper tube.
    2. Cut the orange yarn into small strips and glue them around the top of the toilet paper tube for Peg’s hair. Draw on her buttons with the black marker.
    3. Glue the red tissue paper around the top of the paper tube for Peg's hat. Draw black lines around the hat, just like Peg’s. Gather the tissue together at the top, keeping it together with a drop of glue from the glue gun. Finish the hat off with a fluffy pom pom.
    4. Finally, draw Peg’s eyes and smile with your black marker.
