How to Make the ‘p’ for parrot:

  1. Cut a lowercase p from a piece of red foam sheet. We used a piece that was 2” x 4” so that it would match our uppercase letter crafts.
  2. Cut a beak for the parrot out of yellow foam.
  3. Glue or tape the feathers to the backside of the lowercase p.
  4. Glue or tape the beak onto the parrot.
  5. Add a wiggly eye.
  6. Squawk like a parrot just for fun!
