Make your own parrot notepad holder – Miles Kelly

Did you know that Brazil has over 70 different parrot species? Make your own Brazilian parrot notepad holder with our easy guide; which has been taken from our Make Jungle Animals book. So grab the glue and get stuck in!


You will need:
Some help from a parent
Card – red (A4)
Eye sticker (if you can find one)
Glue stick
Paper – black, blue, red, white, yellow
Pencil (sharp)
Scissors
Sticky notepad (square, 7.5 cm)
String
Template to download

So here's how you do it...

1 Using the template, draw the parrot's body shape on the red card.
2 Cut out the body shape and fold along the dotted lines.
3 Make two holes in the centre strip with a sharp pencil. Glue the notepad to the inside.
4 Thread the string through the holes and knot the ends together.
5 Using the templates, draw the beak on white and black paper, and feather shapes on the red, yellow and blue paper. Cut them out.
6 Glue the feathers and beak to the inside and outside of the front flap (as shown). Add the eye sticker (or draw your eye).
