Next, offer a child to trace their non-dominant hand, making a handprint on each piece of paper. (If a child cannot trace yet, do it for them.)
Then, cut out each print. Since you folded the paper, you will end up with six prints.
Trace and cut an orange beak and a red snood.
After that, turn the bag so the flap portion is facing down. Glue the feathers first, and then glue the cut-out prints.
