Birds come in all shapes and sizes.
And some birds come in just SHAPES! :)
Here is a fun and educational bird craft you can do with your little ones.
- Craft Foam or Construction Paper in yellow and the color you want your bird to be.
- 1" Googly Eye
Step 1. Using the craft foam you choose for your bird, cut out a square about 3" big, a small semi-circle, and a small crescent shape.
Step 2. Cut out 3 small triangles from the yellow craft foam.
Step 3. Help your child name all the shapes, including the eye (circle). Tell them you're going to create an animal with the shapes.
Step 4. As you show your child where to glue each shape (as shown below), have them try to guess what animal they are crafting. Add the Googly eye. Let it dry and you're done!
