CC0


Dailymotion:
Materials: two balloons; an air pump and scissors.


Inflate a balloon leaving a four—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first five—inch bubble. It’s the neck (Pic 2).

The next three bubbles you twist to make one wing. Twist the second four—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Twist the third one—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Twist the fourth four—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last three (the second through the fourth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 6). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

The next three bubbles you twist to make the second wing. Twist the fifth four—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Twist the sixth one—inch bubble (Pic 8).

Twist the seventh four—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last three (the fifth through the seventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 10). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme.

The next three bubbles you twist in the bird body fold/twist to make the body. Twist the eighth four—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Twist the ninth four—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the ninth and the eighth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 13). This step is marked with arrows between points C and E on the scheme.

Twist the tenth four—inch bubble (Pic 14).

Lock the free end of the tenth bubble between the eighth and ninth bubbles (Pic 15). This step is marked with arrows between points D and F on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the eleventh bubble. It’s the tail. 

Use a different color balloon to make the legsAttach the legs to the body by locking the legs bubbles between the body and the tail bubbles (Pic 16 through 19).




Congratulations, you have made the big bird body. You may attach the body to a head by tying the knot around a bubble of the head (Pic 20); by stuffing the neck between bubbles of the head; or by twisting a small bubble at the end of the neck and locking it with a bubble of the head in one lock twist. Have fun and happy twisting :)
