This fun toy might be simple, but it’s very charming and we do love it.
An owl drawing who climbs upwards when we pull the two strings apart – and descends when we move them closer to each other.
We used one of my daughter’s thousand drawings We chose THE OWL. We glued it on sturdier cardboard then cut away the background.
The mechanism at the back is more interesting, but it’s still quite simple.
You will need: a drinking straw, a longer piece of string, a larger coin and two beads. See photos for the exact method of putting them together, then hang the whole toy from a window or door handle. Attach the coin with sticky tape to weigh down the toy.
