I am not surprised you're here. For most people, the hedgehog does not even enter their minds but once you see one, with its cute little nose you find they are quite hard to resist. Just look at this hedgehog photo I found (taken by Sarah Bowman - http://www.flickr.com/people/sarahmcmaniman/)
If you don't immediately fall in love and want to do kid's hedgehog crafts after seeing this photo, you might need to see a therapist. You might need to see one anyway since they are so cute you might not be able to stop making hedgehog crafts. Wow, I may need to make this into a screensaver.
To make these porcupine masks, just go to our porcupine mask diagrams and print them out. Follow the directions on that printed page.
To make this cute hedgehog character you will need a pinecone and some clay. Take some tan clay and push it into the front of the pinecone...then try to form it into a bell-like shape as seen in the 2nd picture above. Make 4 oval shapes and stick them on the bottom of the pinecone for the feet. Take black clay and form it into a ball and push it onto the tip of the bell-shaped clay for the hedgehog's nose. Form 2 more black ball shapes for the eyes. Form the smile by drawing it in with a toothpick. Draw in the toes with the toothpick as well. Take some tan clay and form it into a small ball to use as one of the ears...do the same for the other ear. Let dry to harden.

The best part about Porc&Beans is how much my 2yr old wants to play with him even though he is stuck with 100 sharp objects. So fun.
