How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of yellow card and stick a strip of double-sided tape along the longest edge. Then peel off the backing.
  2. Place a kitchen roll tube onto the double-sided tape, then roll it up until the whole tube is covered in yellow card. Fix in place with more double-sided tape.
  3. Use coloured pens to draw feather shapes onto the yellow card, approximately 7cm down from the top of the tube.
  4. Cut a circle shape out of red card, about the size of the end of the kitchen roll tube.
  5. Cut out lots of feather shapes from a sheet of blue card, then stick them to the red circle using double-sided tape.
  6. Turn the card over and use a black pen to draw two eyes and a mouth. Then cover the top half of the red circle in green and yellow card.
  7. Use double-sided tape to stick the face shape to the top of the kitchen roll tube.
  8. Cut out two feet shapes from orange card and stick them to the bottom of the tube.

Top Tip

Leave the coloured pens to dry before touching to prevent smudging.
