Create a nutty family or a nutty zoo of animals with this nutty craft!

How We Did It

Nutty Creations
Gather a handful of shelled peanuts and several twisty ties.
Nutty Creations
Crack the shells in half and cut the twist ties in half. We cracked shells and ate the peanuts for quite a bit before we got enough that were cracked exactly half but that was part of the fun.
Nutty Creations
Line each shell half with a thick line of glue and put 2 twisty ties (previously cut in half) on top of one of the shells. Then cover it with the other shell half.
Nutty Creations
You can also use 3 twisty ties to make animal legs or add more twisty ties at the top to make crazy hair.
Nutty Creations

No matter how many ties you use, put them in between the glued shell halves.

Nutty Creations
Once the glue is dry, draw faces and other details on your nutty characters with markers or paint.
Nutty Creations
Bend the twisty ties to position the legs, arms, and/or hair.
