After a walk on the beach, Finn was fascinated with the many bird bones from dead sea-gulls we came across.
When he was home later that day he wanted to draw a bird with 'bones'.
After he drew the base, I ripped up some coloured paper into strips for him to use as bones, and gave him a pile of feathers.
When using PVA glue, it's often a good idea to mix a tiny bit of colour into the glue (a drop of food colouring, or paint) so the children can see what area of the paper has glue applied.
I helped him cut around the shape of the bird, and we stuck it to a clean sheet of paper.
