all you need is:
- brown, black, white and orange construction paper
- feathers (can get a a craft store, we used brown/black)
- glue stick
- hot glue (obviously parents, you do this part...)
- a pinecone of choice
plug in the hot glue gun (preferably away from your child). now take the glue stick (or have your child do this part) and cover the brown ovals. have your little one glue on feathers to the brown ovals for the wings. we were very generous with the feathers for ours.
then glue the black circles in the middle of the white circles for the eyes. for the beak, you can gently fold the triangle in half length wise to shape it a little if you'd like.
now all you have to do is glue the pieces on. i simply folded a small part of the top of each wing and glued each one to the side of the pinecone. then the eyes, beak and that's it! what a fun, simple and cheap project.
i hope you enjoy this craft. xoxo.
