-Thin coloured card
-Basic Materials: pencil, tape, scissors, coloured pens/pencils

-Draw a bird body shape (or use a stencil if making several models)
-Cut out and make a 4cm horizontal slit at the the top of the body part
-Decorate the face and body of the bird (before adding the 'wings). You could use white circular stickers for the eyes and extra decoration
-Pleat the coloured paper into a fan (the folds should be around 2cm)
-Fold in half
-Insert the pleated 'wings' into the cut. Fan out and secure the two halves together at the top with tape. You can tape the underpart of the wings to the body to fan out fully.
