Step 3: Stick Rubber Strip on the Half Part of Wheels
Take a rubber tape or cut rubber from a bicycle tube and stick it on the half part of the wheels. Stick the tape with the super glue that it does not come off. Make two layers of that tape one on another.
Step 4: Take a Bicycle Spoke and Bend It As Shown in Picture
Take one bicycle spoke and bent it as shown in the picture and take two plastic tube pieces and slide it over the bent spoke making sure that both of the tubes can slide smoothly over the spoke length. This tubes can be easily made out of the ball pen refills or inner colored tubes.
Step 5: Hot Glue the Assembly on TT Motor
Hot glue the spoke assembly on the motor. Tubes are to be glued and not the spoke making sure that it has a slant angle which you will understand in a while in the next step. The entire TT motor once glued will be able to slide on kind of rails made up of cycle spoke which seems to be of U-shaped.
Step 6: Take Two Wooden Strips and Make Holes
Take two wooden strips and make two holes as shown in the picture above. Make it sure to make it at a slant that our spoke assembly will rest on it making the feet of the sparrow.

The battery is added by sticking or hot gluing at the belly part of a sparrow. Wiring is made and the switch is added. A rubber band is strapped as shown in the picture.
Step 9: Draw the Templet of the Sparrow.
A figurine is made out of cardboard single layered or you can even use balsa wood for that reason. Take the cutout of the eye portion, keep that round part as we will use that round eye part cut out as well. Make two figurines of the sparrow one for each lateral sides.
Step 10: Color It and Hot Glue Both Sides
Color it and hot glue the sparrow on both sides to Sparrow mechanism. Eyes are painted white which are glued on the wheels.
