Supplies Needed

  • Dragon or Unicorn Take & Make kit

Step 1

Find the velcro opening on the center back of your magical creature. Open the velcro and reach into the opening to find a small white pouch. Pull the pouch all the way out of your plush animal. Unzip the pouch.

Step 2

You can begin stuffing your animal friend with fiber-fill by putting your hands through the small white pouch. Please make sure that the pouch is pulled all the way out as you are stuffing. Otherwise, the fiber-fill does not go into your stuffed animal, and it can get a little messy. Fill the arms and legs first, and then the head and belly.

Step 3

Make your special creature even more magical by making a wish on the rainbow star and placing this inside your unicorn or dragon.

Step 4

Close up your new animal friend by zipping up the pouch and sealing the velcro closure.

Step 5

Now you can give your magical creature a name on the birth certificate! You can also list the date of birth, and fur and eye color.

Step 6

Congratulations on bringing your cuddly friend to life! Always give it lots of hugs and love!
