Lion legs


Take another yellow pipe cleaner, cut it into two and attach one onto the body to form the lion's tail. Wrap the other yellow piece around a pencil to form the lion's head. Set the head to one side for now.

Poke the remaining brown pipe cleaner through the middle of the lion's body, then add the mane, legs and the yellow head. Make sure you keep a bit of the brown spine poking through the head to from the nose.
