The two-faced Mayor is great for parents and kids to build together. Assemble him and then decide which face to show — smiley or twisted!
Time: 25 minutes
What You’ll Need
- Regular paper or cardstock
- Glue or double-sided tape
How To Make It
- Print the template on regular paper or cardstock and cut out the pieces.
- Starting with the Legs, make folds along all dashed lines. Secure tabs A through D on the Legs to their corresponding panels in alphabetical order. Complete the shape of the Legs using the three E tabs.
- Attach the Large Body Base to the Legs by securing the three F tabs on the Legs to the inside of the square cutout on the Large Body Base piece.
- Curl the Pole into a tube shape and secure the P tab to the inside of the tube.
- Place the Pole into the circular opening of the legs piece. The Pole is used to allow the head to rotate.
- For the Front piece, starting from left to right, secure each A tab to the back of the piece next to it.
- For the Back piece, starting from left to right, secure each C tab to the back of the piece next to it.
- Once you’ve completed assembling the Front and Back pieces, attach them to each other using the B and D tabs. This will complete the body shape.
- Fold the gray tabs on the Large Body Base away from you. Use glue to secure the gray tabs to the inside of the opening at the bottom of the body. Make sure the feet are pointing in the right direction before you attach the pieces together.
- Fold the gray tabs on the Small Body Base away from you. Slip the Small Body Base over the Pole. Use glue to secure the gray tabs to the inside of the opening at the top of the body.
- For the Head, fold the paper at the dashed lines away from you. Once you’ve made the folds, the Head should easily form into a funnel shape. Complete the shape of the Head with the F tab. Fold the G tabs toward you. These will be used to attach the Hat to the Head in step 14.
- Fold the gray tabs on the Head Base away from you. Use glue to secure the gray tabs to the inside of the opening at the bottom of the Head.
- Attach the two sides of the Hat using the H tabs. Secure the top part of the Hat with glue or double-sided tape.
- Secure the G tabs on the Head to the underside of the Hat.
- Place the Head onto the Pole. You do not need to secure it with glue. It should be free to rotate.
- Fold each arm in half along the center dashed line and secure so the design is two-sided. Butterfly the tabs outward and use them to attach the arms to the sides of the body.
Cutting should be done by an adult.
