This is a very simple project that only takes about 5 minutes or less.

Step 1: Starting Out

Start out by cutting a square piece of tinfoil. The bigger you want your animal to be, the bigger the tinfoil.

Step 2: Cutting

Start by cutting 4 different parts of the tinfoil. 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom. Cut the side to make it have 3 equal taps on each side.

Step 3: Forming the Animal

Now, scrunch each tab (there should be 6) and by doing that, you will have made the head, tail, four legs, and a body.

Step 4: Almost Done!!

Now all you have to do is bend the legs at the end to make paws, and make the head look more like a head by making it round. If need you can cut something you can to make it shorter. Now you are done!!!

I haven't tried those ideas before. I have tried wrapping string around it to get it texture and color, but clay would probably look better than string so thx!

From this tinfoil animal you could then cover it in air dry clay (it will crack a little when shrunk) or use it as an armature for oven bake clay. :)
