WHAT YOU NEED:

- 1 piece of 10mm Ply wood
- Handsaw or Jigsaw
- Drill + Screws
- Wire
- Dowel
- Plastic milk bottles
- Paints + Paintbrushes
- Marking tape
- Walt's template. Download it HERE!

WHAT TO DO:

1. Use Walter’s template to draw the parts of the caravan onto your plywood, then with the help of an adult you can either hand saw or use a jigsaw to cut them out.
2. Screw together the sides to the bottom. Then screw in your front and back and roof parts.
3. Cut your plastic milk bottle into a nice long length that fits the curved roof section and screw in place (you’ll need to straighten out the curves in the plastic- it will hold nicely when screwed down)
4. For the perch, drill two holes in the dowel (see the diagram to get an idea of where) wrap your wire through the holes and around the dowel and secure the wire to the base of the caravan with scrap pieces of wood.
5. Then paint! To make the straight lines of the caravan I used tape and then peeled it off to reveal nice ‘flush’ lines after painting.

NOTE: HERE AND THERE YOU MAY NEED TO SLIGHTLY CHANGE THE MEASUREMENTS TO MAKE EVERYTHING FIT SNUG!
