Birdie:

Step 1

Using the template, cut out the necessary parts of the sun yellow and citrus yellow construction paper and glue them together minding the change in colour. Then cut out the beak using the orange construction board and fold and kink it along the dotted line.

Step 2

Then glue on the beak and moving eyes and paint on the markings. Glue the feathers on behind the biddies using the adhesive tape.

Step 3

Cut the deco tape (approx. 7 cm), bead on various yellow pearls and make a knot at one end. Also glue on the legs behind the biddies using the adhesive tape. Glue small green, red and naturally coloured pearls on the belly of the biddies.

Step 4

With a needle and nylon thread hang the lady bird in a chain and attach a further thread for hanging them up.

Lady bird:

Step 1

Cut out the parts of red, light red, black and skin coloured construction paper and glue them together as shown in the picture.

Step 2

Using a black marker, paint on the markings and glue on the moving eyes.

Step 3

Cut bentplush / pipe cleaners for the antennae (approx. 4 cm) and legs (approx. 6 cm). Apply one drop LePage ® White Glue to each hole in the wooden beads and feed in the bentplush / pipe cleaner. Once dried, apply the antennae and legs to the bodies using adhesive tape.
