Cut 5 cardboard pcs as shown in image below. 3 pcs with extension to join with legs and 2 pcs without extension. Paste all the parts such that pcs with extension are placed in centre.
- Shaping Lego Legs
Cut out 6 pcs of leg shape as shown below using cardboard. Paste all the 3 pcs together to form 2 legs.
- Wrapping and Neat up
Cut out white strips of paper and wrap it all over the sides of body, arms, legs to give a neat look.
- Joining parts
Insert a tooth pick in each part such that all parts are movable. Cut out extra tooth pick from sides. Refer to video for this step.
In order to lock the tooth pick so that the pcs do not fall apart, cut out small circles and stick on the tooth pick. Be very careful while sticking so that the parts do not stick to each other. Otherwise parts will not move.

Make a paper roll and stick it on top of body part in centre. Prepare another bigger roll for head such that this roll is able to pass through the previous roll.
