Fun for kids to use and the perfect size!
I think this silly bird looks similar to Kevin from UP.
You could do the colors to match!
Walks and pecks with simple controls and small enough for little hands!
Great for dexterity practice!
Step 1: Supplies!
6 Pom poms: 1 large, 3 medium, 2 small (contrast color)
1 mardi gras bead chain
2 craft sticks
2 wiggly eyes
2 metal washers
Tools: hot glue/gun, a big needle and scissors
Step 2: Putting it together!
Cut your bead chain into 3 pieces.
I didn't use all the beads, just 9 beads on each string.
Just eyeball it.
Basically, here's the layout...
Step 3: Feet, shoes and leggies!
Put hot glue on a washer, and stick it to the pom pom foot!
It will automatically land on the washer every time it steps...
plus it makes a clicky sound when they step like tap shoes!
Take a bead chain and hot glue it to the small pom pom.
Repeat for the second leg and foot.
Hot glue those legs to the large pom pom body!
Step 4: Give it personality!
Put a dot of hot glue on it and pinch the top to form a beak shape.
Hot glue the beak on the last remaining medium size pom pom...
Add your wiggly eyes!
Hot glue a plume to the top of the head...and the remaining bead
chain to the head of the bird to the body, forming the neck!
Like so...hot glue the last feather into the backside for the tail feather!
