Bluebird of Happiness

This little bluebird is even simpler to make than it looks. Once kids get the hang of using a skewer to make holes in the polystyrene they will happily come up with their own exotic bird species!

Supplies

Two small polystyrene balls
Wooden skewer
Kid's pvc glue
Acrylic paint and brush
Match sticks
Scissors
Googly eyes
Four feathers

Instructions

Paint the polystyrene balls. I have found that this is easiest if you skewer the balls first

Attach head and body using half a matchstick and a spot of glue. Then stick matchstick legs into the body.

Use a skewer to make holes for two wings, a tail and a feather on the top of the head. Then stick in the feathers.

Glue on googly eyes and use half a match stick as a beak.
