Paper Tube Creatures

Introduction: Paper Tube Creatures

About: I'm an artist, environmentalist, animal lover, gardener, recycling nut, a high school teacher, crafter, Mom, Christian and widow who reads a lot in between figuring out how to do things.
My middle school art students received a challenge from me: Make something using a tube and assorted junk, but you cannot use tape or staples. (Why no tape or staples? 1. The overuse of these materials made this challenge necessary. 2. To teach the mastery of glue and also to stress the importance of "glue wins over tape!")

Students came up with many creative solutions:
  • Pit bull
  • Rapunzel and her tower
  • Batman
  • Adventure Time characters
  • Characters from books
I had available:
tubes of different sizes, lengths
yarn
scrap papers
plastic lids and tops
buttons
fabric scraps
liquid white glue and glue sticks
colored pencils/markers
corks

I enter this into the contest not for myself, but for my creative students!
