How cute are these! And so easy too!!!

What you will need

  • Plastic bottle caps (cleaned well)
  • Plastic spoons
  • Glue dots (found at any craft supplier)
  • Plastic to make wings (I used the insert from a reusable shopping bag but we’ve used old milk bottles before too)
  • Permanent pen (to mark out wings)
  • Scissors (to cut out wings)
  • Kindy Glitz or other craft supplies to decorate wings
  • Googly eyes


Step 1

Mark out some wings using the permanent marker then cut them out.

Step 2


Then have the kids glue the wings and eyes onto either the bottle cap or spoon.


Step 3

Then it’s as simple as decorating the wings and giving them a name. We also glued them onto some long paddle pop sticks to insert into the garden.
