  • 4 jumbo craft sticks
  • Toothpick
  • Black fine tip marker
  • Paintbrushes

Craft Paint:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Purple
  • Yellow
  • Light green
  • Green
  • Black
  • White


  • Paint the craft sticks, one each in red, orange, purple and yellow.
  • Use the handle end of a large paintbrush dipped in light green paint to add large spots to the orange stick. Use a medium paintbrush to add smaller dots.
  • Use a liner brush to add green stripes to the yellow stick.
  • Use circular motion (as if you were drawing a circle with a crayon) with a large paintbrush handle to add the big eye to the purple stick. Depending on the size of the eyes that you want, use different sized paintbrushes.
  • For the large eye on the purple stick, add a dot of green over the dry white paint and allow the green to dry. When dry, add a smaller dot of black.
  • You can draw the mouths with a black marker and use a white paint pen, if you have one, to color in the teeth. I used a toothpick dipped in white paint.
  • To add other details such as eyebrows use a fine point black marker. Hint: after making the teeth white, go over the outlines again with a black marker.
  • Use a toothpick dipped in black paint to add the black pupils of the eyes. For larger pupils, use the handle of a paintbrush.
