Twisted Tongues

Twisted Tongues craft

Tongue twisters fall trippingly from your tongue with this Crayola® Twistables™ tongue twister project.

  • 1.

    Do you enjoy tongue twisters? Make a Crayola Model Magic tongue sculpture to show off your favorites.

  • 2.

    Mix white Model Magic with color from Crayola Washable Markers. Keep adding color and kneading until the tongue is really pink! Shape the modeling compound into a large tongue shape.

  • 3.

    Flatten small balls of the modeling compound for teeth. Tap the bottom edge of each tooth on a table to make one end flat. Place teeth on top of the tongue.

  • 4.

    Roll two Model Magic lips. Shape the upper lip by pressing your finger into the center of the roll. Texture it with plastic dinnerware. Press the upper lip in place, slightly over the teeth. Repeat for a bottom lip.

  • 5.

    Create a flat triangle of Model Magic to attach to the back of your tongue sculpture. Attach this wedge out of sight behind the lips. You will place a heavy object on this wedge to keep the tongue in place when it has dried.

  • 6.

    Use Crayola Scissors to cut out several long strips of colored construction paper. With Crayola Twistables, write your favorite tongue twisters on the strips. Roll each strip around a Twistables barrel. Unwind slightly.

  • 7.

    Glue the ends of the tongue-twister strips to your tongue sculpture with Crayola School Glue. Let them cascade from your tongue. Dry.

  • 8.

    Set your sculpture on the edge of a shelf or table. Put a small, heavy object on the wedge in back to hold it in place.
