P is for Parrot


We are lucky to have a flock of Galahs in our neighbourhood and the odd Cockatoo that visits the park near our house. The Galahs in particular have caught Neevahs attention as the huge flock noisily passes our house every night at dusk on the way to their night time roost she loves watching the fly by and often waves and yells 'see you tomorrow night'. Since G for Galah doesn't really work and the fact that Galahs and Cockatoos are part of the parrot family Neevah decided that making a P for Parrot might be fun but secretly i think she just wanted to play with the feathers.

You will need
2 pieces of paper in different colours
Feathers

Glue
Scissors
Wiggly Eye
Brown Paper
Yellow
Paper
Marker Pen

To Make
1 .Draw a large P on one piece of paper
2 .Ask your child to cover the P is feathers - I had to cut the feathers up into smaller pieces so they didn't over hang the P to much3 .Cut out a beak and a foot from the brown paper and a crest from the yellow paper
4 .Stick on the wiggly eye5 .Let it dry
6 .Cut out the P and glue it to the remaining piece of paper
7 .Stick on the beak, foot and crest - sorry no photos of this step Neevah was to quick for the camera
