Bonfire Night Making Guys

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Children to work in small groups to make a Guy for Bonfire Night.


Old Newspapers (check for any inapproriate pictures first!)
Old tights
Old clothes
Paper Plates (to make a face)
Old Gloves


Children scrunch up Newspapers to fill the clothes, using old tights to make arms, legs and head. Children to work out how to attach the clothes together to form a person shape and include paper plate for a face. If having a bonfire the children can be assisted to place the Guys on the fire (prior to being lit obviously). Or put the guy outside a local shop for a week before your bonfire to raise funds for the unit.
