Christopher Columbus was given parrots by the Natives when he was travelling. See if you can create your own parrot. You could use coloured paper (or plain and colour it in), empty packets and boxes or whatever you can find lying around at home (ask someone first!).


Cut and stick or build your own parrot like the ones below. See if you can make yours so that the wings can move!
