ecoIn my ongoing Roald Dahl obsession of late, I made a couple of Twit’s Bird Pies for my daughter’s classroom. They had a bonus ingredient inside!
I had to buy the pies (school rules!) but I made these by lifting the pie in the tin out of the outer plastic packaging. Then I used feathers, felt and pipe cleaners to make bird legs and wings.
To add the full effect I went online and found images from the book, copied and pasted them and made a label to cover the one on the plastic packaging from the store. I glued the label down to the plastic with a glue stick. They were a big hit with the kids and they were excited to find a second Roald Dahl surprise inside. In honor of Roald Dahl’s book James and the Giant Peach – they were peach pies!
