There are a few stages for this project and depending on your child’s skills and patience (!) you”ll have to decide what they’ll be making and what will be your job.
What you will need
- paper (newspaper, tissues,..)
- paper mache glue (I usually make mix white flour with water – there are lots of other recipes for this online)
- yellow paper
- egg carton
- colors (tempera, acrylic,…)
- googly eyes
Tear up the paper to strips, dip them in paper mache glue and apply them on balloon. We usually do 2 to 3 layers. It dries slowly so if your kids don’t like to wait I suggest you prepare this beforehand.
Next comes the beak. It’s made out of the pointy part of the egg cartoon and colored orange.
Last but not least add some googly eyes (or draw on the eyes).
