Instructions:

  1. Paint the wood ball or apple shape and clay pot. Let dry. Be sure it is the correct size for the size of pot you have.

  2. Turn the pot upside down and glue the head on.

  3. Glue the eyes on the head.

  4. Glue the leaves on the back of the pot to make a fan-like tail.

  6. Glue the felt or yarn by the beak.

Note: Be sure to help the children with the hot glue gun.
