parrot_paper_roll_craft

This craft is made specially for one of our visitors :) We hope you all enjoy it!

Craft supplies

For each:

Paper roll

Acrylic paint – yellow and green, paintbrush

Pair of wiggle eyes

Camel foam scraps

Scissors

Loaded glue gun

Feathers

For green one:

2″ Styrofoam ball

Directions

If you’re making parrot with Styrofoam head, cut about 1″ out of paper roll across, then hotglue the head to the body

Further instructions are the same for both

Color your parrot any color you like – we used yellow and green, let it dry

Hotglue eyes and feathers (on the heads, as wings and as tails)

Make the beaks – it’s very easy – just draw on the foam small fat boomerangs and cut them out

Hotglue beaks to the heads

It’s a great puppet to play or just decoration. Enjoy!
