2. Trace around colored cardstock for the feathers and the body shapes.

You’ll also want to trace around orange for the beak and feet and red for the snood.

We made 3 feathers of each color but you can also make them different colors too.

3. Start by gluing the feathers down. We glued them in a pattern order.
