Intro: Angry Birds Pin the Beak Party Game
Planning an Angry Birds Bash? Then this is the instructable or you. For less than $5 bucks, you can make this easy DIY Pin the Beak Party Game. It's basically a spin on the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but considering it's almost 2012, I think it needed a little upgrade. Hence, Pin the Beak on the Angry Bird was born & offers universal fun to people of all ages.
** Blind-folds omitted for players under 2**
Step 1: Materials Needed
To make a Pin the Beak on the Angry Bird Party Game, you will need the following materials:
1 sheet large red poster board
Yellow card stock - 1 sheet = 4 beaks
Black Card Stock - 2 sheets
White Card Stock- 2 sheets
Adhesive- I ended up using Stick-E-Tak (not velcro)
Step 2: Make the Angry Bird
To make the Angry Bird, take a pencil and draw the outline of the bird on the red poster board. I printed out a picture of the red angry bird that I got from Google images and kept it next to me as a guide. Cut out the outline and set aside.
Don't worry about pencil marks. We'll take care of those later.
Step 3: Make the Eyes & Eyebrows
To make the eyebrows, draw the outline on black card stock using a pencil. Cut out the eyebrows and place them on a piece of white card stock. Draw the eyes with a pencil and cut them out. Set aside.
Step 4: Make the Beaks
Using a piece of the yellow card stock, draw the beak of the angry bird and cut it out. This will be the master beak you use to make the rest. Place the master beak on a sheet of the yellow card stock and trace around it. You should be able to get four beaks per piece of card stock, depending on the size you use.
Next, use a black sharpie, and trace around the outline of each beak. You will have to draw a small line connecting the bottom portion of the beaks. ( see 2nd Pic )
Step 5: Make the Belly & Tail Feathers
To make the belly, place one of the beaks on a piece of white card stock and draw the outline around it. Remove the beak and cut out the belly. Set aside.
To make the tail feathers, draw the outline on a piece of black card stock and cut them out. Trace around the tail feathers with a black sharpie.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
Trace around the angry bird with a black sharpie. Using a glue stick, begin to glue pieces on, beginning with the eyes. Next, glue on the eyebrows, then the belly, the beak & last the tail feathers.
Use a black sharpie to outline the eyes and color in the pupils. You also want to outline the bottom of the bird's belly.
Step 7: Pin the Beak on the Angry Bird
Time to play! Write each players name on the bottom of each beak and add some adhesive to the back. Place a few pieces of clear tape on the back of the bird and hang in desired place to play the game. Blindfold each player, spin three times and gently guide player in the direction of the angry bird. Player who gets closest to the beak WINS!!!
