  • Cut the felt colors into feather shapes – long enough to cover the 4 fingers of the mitten. They should be oblong shaped, pointed at the top, and cut straight across at the bottom (They look a little like leaf shapes)
  • Glue those onto the 4 fingers of the mitten – For kids that are right handed – the thumb should be on your right. Opposite for lefties! 🙂
  • Now, glue the googly eye, and beak onto the thumb like the picture shows
  • Wrap the red pipe cleaner around a pencil to give it the curls. Slide it off the pencil. Straighten out a little piece at the top, and glue onto the beak
  • Stuff a couple of  cotton balls in each finger, and 3 in the thumb to give them a plush look, and add support so they can stand up
