How to Make Toy Story ‘The Claw’

Step 1

First, we are going to start by making the claw part for the game.

Step 2

Start by taking two silver pipe cleaners and twist the ends together so that they form a circle.

Step 3

Now pick three points along the circle equally spaced apart and pinch them so that the spaces in between meet in the middle forming a “Y” shape. This will be your claw. Curve each claw just a little to resemble a grabbing claw from an arcade prize machine.

Step 4

Next, cut a piece of yarn about a foot long. Tie one end onto the center part of your pipe cleaner claw and the other end onto the tip of your straw/dowel.

Step 5

Last we’ll hot glue the small magnet to the bottom center of our pipe cleaner claw. You will then have a claw fishing pole with a magnet to pick up small metal objects!

Now it is time to make the little green aliens that we will use our claw to pick up!

Step 6

Start with some green foam paper. Cut a piece about 2” by 2”. Fold it in half.

Step 7

Using a pencil draw half of an oval on the folded edge along with half of an antenna on the top of the oval along the fold as well and a pointed ear on the side of the oval, opposite of the fold. Keep the paper folded and cut out your stencil.

Step 8

Unfold and clean up any parts that need it using your scissors. Now hot glue a washer to the back side of your alien head. This is what is going to attach our alien to the magnetic claw.

Step 9

Flip your alien head over and glue three google eyes on and draw a mouth with a sharpie.

Step 10

Repeat this process to make as many alien heads as you want.
