2 moving eyes
A pair of scissors

2 snow balls (polystyrene) of different sizes (in leisure and creative stores)

Step 1

Paint it in a white cream composed of white paint and a touch of brown paint
Pass 2 layers if necessary.

Step 3

Take a small and a big snowball and paint them in yellow with a big brush
Assemble them with a dot of glue when they are dry

Step 4

Then cut out a small triangle, to make the beak, and two paws in the orange paper.
Glue the eyes and the beak on the head, then the paws under the body.
