Music Track The Mighty Tiger by Pax Nindi

In our last activity you made your Carnival backpack. Hurray! This week learn how to make a fantail to attach to the backpack.

Backpacks can carry all different shapes and designs so if you like create your own shapes instead. Time to get creative!

You will need…

Cardboard boxes – remember to leave them for 3 days before use to make sure they are safe.
1 x glue gun and glue sticks
1 x craft knife
NB Not to be used by young children. If teenagers are using these tools they should be supervised by an adult.
Alternatively all activities can also be done with PVA glue and scissors
A cutting matt or piece of wood or card to cut on

First measure and cut your templates.
