How to Make a Chicken from Crumpled Paper


Materials:

Two-sided colored paper, glue. You may use moving eyes. The paper may be different: for xerox, origami or office paper; the main condition for it — it should be not very thick, so that the kid can easily crumple it by himself.

Making:

1. Take a yellow paper sheet of album format. Ask the kid to crumple it, straighten, turn over and crumple again, making a ball from it. Make the same with a piece of green paper, but after straightening try to shape it like a glade, where a Chicken will be placed.

2. Fold a small piece of red paper several times shaping a triangle. After gluing its edge, insert it into a suitable crease on the yellow paper. Cut the eyes — circles of black and white paper, glue them together and then — to the Chicken. (You may use ready moving eyes, too.)

3. From even (not crumpled) paper cut two identical wings and glue them on the sides.

Place the Chicken on the grass. Well done!

Take two-sided paper, glue, tape, a puncher, scissors and start creating.

Cut arbitrarily a flower of the desired size. With a puncher make holes in the flower petals for joining them together with a piece of tape. Then cut additional parts: for a Bunny — ears, a nose and a tail. If you want to make a Handbag in the form of a Hen, then cut wings, a scallop and a beak. Glue the additional parts to the main one and draw the eyes.
