Tear off five strips of newspaper. Roll two strips into balls for the eyes, then paint them white. Wait for the paint to dry before painting in black pupils.

Paint the fourth strip the same colour as the head, then glue the two ends down to the centre of the head like an arch, so that it looks like a nose.
