I always have lots of extra supplies handy because my students always want to make a few extra doves 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 birds in half (so the beak touches the tail) to make that middle cut a bit easier and more independent.
