Make your own birdy activity

Hello Birdy!

To celebrate the publication of Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton, we invite you all to try your hand at designing and making a bird of your own – using this brilliant activity sheet that Chris made!

This is great fun to do either at home over the holidays or at school. 

What you'll need:
  • A blank piece of A4 paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

1. With the help of an adult – carefully cut out the bird shapes. 

2. Rearrange the shapes in any way you like to create your own new bird!   
3. Use glue to stick your bird to a blank piece of paper. 

You don’t need to use every item on the worksheet - you could pick your favourite shapes
The wackier the bird the better   
Why not give your bird a name or make up a story about it?

Here are some that the children of Orchard Primary School in Hackney, London made:

We love this one!

We would love to see what you come up with!
