Make a Mini Troll

Troll Statue (5)

After reading in Highlights magazine about an artist who makes troll sculptures from wood and recycled materials, Travis was eager to make his own. A walk to a nearby beach was the perfect opportunity to collect pieces of bark, branches, and wood shavings on the ground.

We returned with a plastic bag full of pieces and now needed to design the troll! Travis loved setting this out, initially with the troll lying down.

He carefully arranged arms, legs, and a head.

I then used hot glue to make his creation stand up in 3D. We even added a little orange peel as a hat!

What a ferocious little troll it was, and a neat concept to boot.
