Rooster and Hen


Firstly print out the templates and stick onto card. These need to be cut out and replicated so that the youth club participants don’t have to wait for a long time for their templates. For younger children you should draw examples onto craft paper (using the templates as help), so that during the youth club session they are not swamped down with drawing.

Making process

Firstly make the hen. To do this first draw the body and wings onto white craft card and cut them out. Then the crest and wattle (flap of skin underneath the chicken neck) are drawn onto red craft card and cut out. Subsequently, the beak is drawn onto orange craft card and cut out. When gluing together it is best to place a newspaper underneath to avoid glue on the table. Place the body into position and glue on the beak and crest. Underneath the beak glue the wattle. Then the eyes are drawn on and wings attached. So that the window picture looks nice from both sides, decorate the other side in the same way if desired. To do this you will have to draw and cut out another beak, wing, crest and wattle and stick on as described earlier or draw the face on. Undoubtedly there will be small size differences when drawing/cutting out the body parts for the opposite side hence it is wise to trim the edges. For the rooster the same steps are applied as for the hen, however it is advisable not to make the rooster and hen at the same time as the pieces are easily mixed up.
