I always have lots of extra supplies handy because my students always want to make an extra dove once they grasp the process. And why stop at white doves? The birds look wonderful made with colorful paper and tissue as well.
*Teacher Tip: For younger students, show them how to fold the bird’s body in half (so the beak touches the tail) to make that middle cut a bit easier and more independent.
