Paper Hen

Another variation of the wooden hen seen on this website is the paper version for children to do. This makes a great decoration in the window at springtime, but fits in the kitchen window all year long, just as well.

1. Print out and copy the pattern on to the correctly colored pieces and cut them out. You will need 2 body pieces, 4 feet, 2 beaks and 1 comb. Cut the comb with a little allowance out so it may be glued inbetween the body pieces.
2. Glue the beaks and the feet onto the 2 body pieces. With the backsides facing each and the comb inserted in the top, glue the 2 body pieces together. Dot the hen eyes above the beak.
3. Gather a couple of strands of straw and tie in the middle. Glue this then onto the body as seen in the picture.
4. Punch a small hole in the comb and tie a red thread through for hanging up.
