Princess & Me: Rapunzel’s Pipe Cleaner Pascal

It is no surprise that Rapunzel’s best friend is her chameleon, Pascal. It takes a very special chameleon to stick with a princess for the 18 years she is trapped in a tower, and sometimes a good friend is all you need to get through a bad day. Between countless games of hide and seek and even posing for Rapunzel’s many paintings, Pascal is the kind of friend any princess would be lucky to have.

You will need:

  • 2 plastic google eyes

  • Scissors

  • 1 pencil

  • Elmer’s liquid glue

  • 1 short red or pink pipe cleaner (3 in.)

  • 2 short green pipe cleaners (3 in. each) 

  • 2 full length green pipe cleaners

Step Two: Loop one of the full length pipe cleaners in half, creating a circle in the middle. This circle will be the chameleon’s head, so make sure it is the size you want!

Step Three: Wrap one of the halves of that same pipe cleaner around the circle you have created until it is fully covered. Your chameleon now has a head!

Step Four: Coil the second full length pipe cleaner around a pencil so that it forms a tight spring. Slide this spring onto the other pipe cleaner so the body is attached to the head. Loosely curl the extra end of the pipe cleaner to make a tail.

Step Five: Take the two shorter green pipe cleaners and bend them over the front and back of the spring to form legs.
