Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Wings
first, you will need to draw a figure like this, looks like a feather, so this will be the guide, draw two of this wings the you will bend them by the middle and will look more like a snitch's wings, paint them in the color you preffer, silver or gold, I choose gold color using markers.
now you have to take two toothpicks and glue them to the wings, to insert the wings in the ball
Step 2: The Snitch
Step 3: Join the Pieces and Paint
yep we hace all the parts ready, now we just need to join them. Glue the end of the wings (the toothpick) ang insert them in the snitch ball, wait an hour and the paint it, wait almost a day and your snitch will be ready to a good quiddicth match ;)
