When Ioan saw Finny was making a fox, he decided he wanted to make a puffin.


  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Crepe paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Coloured pencils


Making his puffin

First Ioan drew his puffin in the style of, “There’s nothing like a puffin’.

Then, he started to glue some red tissue paper on to the puffin’s bill.

Ioan decided to trace over the next section of the beak, so that he could cut the right shape out of the orange in one go.

Next, he stuck the turquoise on the bill.

The dark blue head was measured to shape, cut out of crepe paper, and stuck down.

Ioan coloured the body in blue pencil crayon, stuck white tissue paper to the belly and coloured the feet in orange.

Researching his puffin

Ioan researched about how puffins are adapted to their environment. He decided to write his findings up on some blue card. He really wanted to concentrate on doing his best presentation, so, drew lines in pencil, to keep his writing straight.

Ioan traced over his writing in a blue handwriting pen, repeating the process for all the facts he found.

Glueing the puffin

Ioan added glue to the top of his tissue and crepe paper to strengthen it.

To finish off, once his puffin was dry, he cut it out.

With his puffin finished, he then decided to research animals and their habitats in more detail.
