Introduction: Make a Whizzlygig

About: A digital and printed book series created to help children fall in love with reading.

The Whizzlygigs can be found in the new Epic Adventures book launching this summer.

Whizzlygigs live in the Puff Ducts in the Great Kingdom of Daphne. They're small flying balls of fluff who collect puff in baskets on their back. You can make your own Whizzlygig using our how-to-guide.

You can learn more about the books here:

Step 1:

Use a ‘Pom-Pom’ template to cut out two cardboard disks.

Cereal boxes are great to use.

Step 2:

Place the two disks on top of each other and start wrapping the wool around them. Keep wrapping until you’ve covered the cardboard.

Step 3:

Insert your scissors in between the two pieces of cardboard and carefully cut around.

Step 4:

Using a separate piece of wool, wrap around the Pom-Pom in between the two cardboard disks and tie securely.

Step 5:

Slide the cardboard disks off and you now have a Whizzlygig body.

Step 6:

Use pipe-cleaners to add arms and legs to your Whizzlygigs, cut out a felt beak, arms and legs, and add googly eyes.
