Paper Mache Bird Project

Mrs.  Straton and her son finished this cute bird:

"I enclosed a photo of my son, Xavier standing next to the paper mache bird I made for my in-laws upcoming 35th anniversary.  It was at first going to be a pinata but we thought the idea of hitting a bird (or any animal) was not a good lesson for the children at the party so instead, I cut out a hole in the back where i will put candy inside or other goodies to "dip" into.  I am also making a smaller bird which will have the pull-string event to use as a pinata for the kids.

I kept running out of available paper tissue so I used multi-colors instead of just pink and yellow.  I think the different colors really make it look festive :)
