Hello everyone! I thought as my first post, I should post something which is easy to make but looks extremely sophisticated. That’s when I came up with the idea of “The bird in an egg”. It is extremely easy to make and can be used to decorate bedside tables, office desks and even your dining table. At the end of this activity, you’ll find a poem as your bonus entertainment.
Bird In An Egg – The Activity
For making this you will need:
- A plastic bottle
- A cotton ball
- Some googly eyes
- Red Paper
- X-Acto Knife
- Green Quilling Paper
- White Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brush
Cut the bottle using the X-Acto knife. Eliminate the portion of the bottle above the neck and below the dome. The dome is going to be used for our activity.
Cut out triangles from the bigger end of the dome using a pair of scissors.
Paint the dome using the white and leave it aside. Once it dries, apply a second coat for a more opaque colour. The egg for your bird is ready.
Take the green quilling paper and crumble it to form a flat roundish messy ball.
Take the cotton ball. Stick 2 googly on it (as shown below). Cut a small triangle from the red paper; stick it below the eyes, using some glue to form the bird’s beak. The bird is ready to fly.
Take the egg. Apply glue in the bottom edge and place the quilling paper ball in it. Apply some glue on the base of the bird and stick it on the hay.
The “Bird in an Egg” is ready.
Bird In An Egg – The Poem
She is cute, She is little;
And her voice is so feeble.
She is sweet, She is white;
Her tiny eyes are shinning bright.
Take a bottle, Cut the dome;
Paint it white, There’s the bird’s home.
Take the cotton, create a face;
Turn the green papers into a mess.
Place the bird in it’s home;
Voila! It’s ready to fly to Rome.
