One of W’s favourite C-Beebbies shows is I Can Cook and he loves it when Katy turns her fingers into a ‘pinchy parrot’…so we decided to make a couple ourselves.
This one couldn’t be simpler and they are so bright and colourful they can’t fail to cheer you up.
To make them you will need:
- A small sheet of coloured tissue paper
- Small piece of coloured card
- Googley eyes
- Coloured feathers
First roll your empty toilet roll tube in a folded sheet of tissue paper and secure with tape. Then tuck in the edges top and bottom as shown.
Next cut a small bit of coloured card into a diamond shape and fold in half to form a beak. Stick on with your glue-stick and add your googley eyes.
Then add your coloured feathers for wings. We tried sticking them onto strips of double-sided sticky tape but found that they fell off quite easily so ended up securing the tops with normal sticky tape which worked just fine.
