Take flight as a bird with these beautiful petal wings.

On a recent holiday, my son and his friend declared that they wanted to make wings so that they could fly. The had a list of requirements that included petals and leaves being essential and that they had to cover the length of their arms.

We didn't have a lot of materials to hand but we were in a self catering villa so I had a hunt around for what we could use.

Time: 25 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
Cardboard (old cereal boxes are ideal)
Paper
Sticky tape
Glue
Petals, leaves or anything you want to decorate your wings with

Method
The cardboard is essential for creating firm wings. We used a couple of old cereal boxes, cutting them so there was one long side the length of an arm and cutting out a curve at the bottom end.
Glue on some white paper to cover up the brown of the cardboard.

Collect petals and leaves and glue these on the wings to decorate. My son's friend said that they would be a bit like feathers to help them fly.
Cut strips of paper and then sticky tape them into loops and then stick down firmly on the back of the wings, along the topside.

Feed an arm through the loops for each wing and then flap about.

We also make a colourful beak from a piece of paper folded to a point at one end.

They loved making these petal wing creations and the only disappointment was that they couldn't actually fly but let's pretend is almost as good!
