Build a Snipe

Made on: 
Monday, 2 October, 2000

I found this old high school arts and crafts project somewhere in the back of my closet. Thinking back, this was actually a great way to get kids to be creative using basic materials!

The core of the snipe is an empty plastic bottle and the body was sculpted using paper mache. Dry well for 12-24h and then glued feathers from front to back to make it look a bit more dynamic. Finish it off with two legs made of thick wire wrapped in black paper and a nice beak :)

And here is my snipe, still looking great after 10+ years ;)
