• Coloured foam sheets (these can be purchased cheaply on Amazon). Alternatively, you could use coloured card, or painted cardboard.

• Scissors

• Glue gun or double-sided tape

• Googly eyes (alternatively cut some eyes out from white card)

• Felt tip pens or sharpies

• Ribbon (or string)

How to make:

1. On your coloured foam sheets or card, draw a Greg/sausage roll shape, a present, hat, scarf and any other accessories.

2. Cut these out. If you need help drawing shapes, use tracing paper to use on the book illustrations or find some basic templates online.

3. Assemble your shapes and use a glue gun or tape to stick everything together. Don't forget the googly eyes! Draw on any extra details (like Greg's smile) using your felt tip pens or sharpies.
