This cheeky monkey is very simple to create and very cute to play with. All you need is a few pipe cleaners and some cardboard scraps. We also made an elephant friend for our pipe cleaner monkey, so they can hang around the jungle together. Your monkey should turn out to be quite small and is therefore very handy for carrying in cars or to keep children entertained on public transport.

Use some cardboard to attach the head to the body.

I just love this little monkey and his elephant friend. My son has jungle themed curtains and it would be lovely to have a couple of funny friends hanging from his bookshelf.
thanks
