Part 1

Using the red piece of paper, ask a grown-up to help you cut out two horizontal strips. Using the glue, stick these red strips onto the white piece of paper, leaving a gap in between each strip to make a striped pattern. Using a marker pen, draw on some windows and a door in the centre of the paper.
