A lolly stick birdy!

My 3 year old and 5 year old loved this this morning so I thought I'd share it as it's super simple to make...

First of all, all you need is 2 lolly sticks, a googly eye, feathers and PVA glue.
Put a dot of glue on one of the ends of one of your lolly stick and put the other on top to make a V shape.  If you're working with a child who is happily learning to read you might want to play a game of how many words beginning with 'V' you can think of as you go...

Add a small drop of glue and a googly eye about 2 cm away from the corner of the V then in the corner of the V add a drop more glue and some feathers!

And it's finished!  Just leave it to dry for an hour or two or over night then your little person can play with it.  They might even like to try it out some of this maths with their newly made friend too.


This was my Honi's effort...
