Here’s one for princesses everywhere! A lovely interactive way to use recycled materials.


  • Paper coffee cup
  • Cardboard
  • 2 pipecleaners
  • Pencil or straw
  • 1 piece of kitchen towel



  • Cut the bottom out of a paper cup and leave to dry.
  • Stick a circular piece of card to the end of a straw, draw on a face and stick on a crown shape.
  • Place the kitchen towel around the top of the cup and secure in place with one pipe cleaner.
  • Gather the kitchen towel around the straw under the face and secure with another pipe cleaner using the excess pipe cleaner to form two arms.
  • Place the rest of the straw through the body of the cup
  • Move the straw up and down to hide and reveal the princess!
