Building these insect and animal toys makes a toy for kids that they can play with outside or inside and build all by themselves.
The first and simpler friend we will make is a dragonfly.
For this you’ll need:
Have the child explore with the pieces to try to create a dragonfly that looks like the finished picture below
This activity can be expanded by looking up different kinds of insects and animals around the garden that they can create like hummingbirds, bumble bees, and bunnies.
The next animal is a peacock
For the peacock you’ll need:
Start by putting the blades on the spool and putting the green rods in the other 2 holes to make the feathers and legs.
Then add a holder to each of the bottom of the green rods to make feet
Finally, attach a holder to each end of the red rod and place in the center of the spool to create the peacock shown below
Try looking up different exotic animals that can be seen at the zoo like, flamingo, giraffe, or elephant and see if those can be created with Noggin BuilderZ too.
