Crafts giraffe

A remarkable exhibit for a children's zoo can be a giraffe made of cardboard tubes (tubes of toilet paper and paper towels). Work with such cardboard rolls is good because it does not require much effort to create volumetric shapes - the finished tubes are easily cut, transformed, painted, but they also keep their shape perfectly. The giraffe, made as an artifact from cardboard tubes, is very bright, expressive and realistic.
