My kids make these quite often because they are easy and such fun and they don’t need any help – well maybe some glue control for some!!! So on a sunny afternoon we whipped up a collection of them, really anything that flies: “Meet the flaps.”
- Stiff paper or card.
- A Skewer.
- masking tape.
Step 1: Draw your shape on stiff paper or cardboard. Any shape… we had a pig, a horse, a couple of birds and even some rockets.
Step 2: Cut out two of your shapes.
Step 3: Place your shapes nose to nose and color them as brightly as you can!!!
Step 4: Make some wings in the same way…
Step 5: Glue a wing onto each body part.
Step 6: Then tape a skewer onto one of the body parts and apply lashings of glue.
Step 7: Stick your body parts together and leave them to dry over night… and in the morning you will have a family of flappy friends to run around with.
I just love how they flap around in the wind… you may have to make them yourself to see how cool they look!!!
Thats us – Have fun!!!
