Step 1: Draw a line around the top portion to separate the head from the body. This is not mandatory but helps define these as separate areas. 

Step 2: Make some clothes for your tube person out of colorful paper or fabric scraps that you will glue on or paint some clothing directly onto the bottom portion of the tube.

Step 3: Choose something for the hair- yarn, colored paper or felt will all work well.

Step 4: Now it’s time to add the eyes and mouth.

Step 5: Play with your people!
