Simple Toilet roll parrot

Birds have been a popular topic in our house the last couple of days. Yesterday we made a gorgeous tp roll Peacock and today this cute and simple parrot pal. My son loves to dress up as a Pirate and go on little treasure hunts around the house and this little parrot makes the perfect pirate accessory. They’re really easy to make and cost barely anything too!

You will need

  • Toilet roll/cardboard tube
  • feathers
  • White & yellow paper
  • marker
  • scissors
  • quick drying glue

Start off by covering your Tp roll in red paint and then put it aside to dry.

Once your parrot’s tp roll body is dry, take two long feathers and glue one either side to make two wings.

take a 5-6 multicoloured feathers and glue them down in a bunch on the back of the parrot’s body. put aside to dry the feathers in place.

whilst waiting for the body piece to dry you can make your parrots face. Cut out two small white circles or ovals for the eyes and use a marker pen to draw on some pupils. to make the break fold a piece of yellow paper in half and cut out a triangle using the fold as the bottom of the triangle. This will give you this perfect folded diamond beak.

Glue on your Parrots facial features and he is finished. So simple and easy!
