How to make it

  1. Roll and shape all the clay parts shown.

  2. Cut the end off a toothpick and use it to fasten the head to the body.

  3. Press the fly's wings onto its back.

  4. Bend 6 pieces of wire into leg shapes and insert 3 into each side of the fly's body. Insert the wire antennae into the head and add the clay antennae balls to the other ends of the wire.

  5. Make eyes by pressing the small white balls onto the head, adding the yellow balls on top, and finally press the black balls on for pupils.

  6. Shape the mouth with a toothpick.
