Horse-loving kids dream of having a steed or two of their very own. Now, with Pop-Out & Paint Horse Breeds, they can play out their dreams more fully by creating their own herd of model paper horses. The author also offers instructions on how to make a simple stable and tiny accessories, including a curry comb, a halter, a hay bag, show ribbons, and jumps.
Using a few basic craft supplies — acrylic paints, craft glue, embroidery floss, and yarn — kids will have hours of fun applying authentic paint markings and mane and tail features to pop-out breed templates. Easy to follow step-by-step photographic instructions are designed especially for ages 8 to 12. Quick summaries of the characteristics of each breed add to the crafter’s knowledge and appreciation of the horse.
Easy to make yet startlingly realistic, each unique model is painted on both sides, and the completed horse can stand up for play or display. The sturdy outline left in the book provides a stencil for making additional models.
From the black sheen of the majestic Friesian to the distinctive spots of the Appaloosa, children will find exciting challenges and satisfaction in learning how to create models of all their favorite horse breeds.
