Paint Panda Face

Paint or use a black marker to draw a panda face on the white stone. Paint a tiny dot of white on each eye and a patch of white on the large black stone.

Assemble Panda

After the paint dries, set the stone with the panda face on top of the large black-stone body and "glue" in place with clay.

Make Ears and Bamboo

For ears, stick the small black stones to the panda's head with clay. For bamboo, cut out several leaf shapes from green paper and glue to the toothpick. Press the toothpick onto the panda's body with clay.
