Spring Bird Craft

 

Happy Friday!  This time of year my days are beyond full.  My kids have lots of end of the year activities to attend as well as my own preschool.  Sometimes I feel like a chicken with my head cut off running from concerts, to art shows, to luaus, to baseball practice.  How about you, is your Spring crazy?

To celebrate Spring in preschool we are making these adorable baby birds in a nest.  I absolutely LOVE how they turned out.  It’s simply adorable and such an easy project.

Supplies:

  • Brown Paper Bag
  • Nest filling
  • Broken egg shell
  • Small and Large Pom Poms
  • Glue (I use tacky glue)
  • Orange Felt
  • Google eyes or Black puffy paint

First roll the paper bag into a bird nest.  You can have the kids do this, but sometimes they rip it a little bit {that just adds to the natural look, right?}.

Second have the kids fill the nest with anything, fake grass, real grass twigs etc.  I opted for paper grass since 1) it was on sale and 2) I loved the fun colors.

Third, add the empty egg shell to the “nest”.  It’s already adorable isn’t it?  It makes me think of baby animals and all of the new Spring growth.

Using a large and small pom pom have the little ones make a bird.  Add an orange felt triangle nose and eyes.  I made one with google eyes and another with black puffy paint eyes.  They are both cute, but in different ways.

So, are you going to make a cute little birdie with someone you love?  I hope your kids are inspired to enjoy Spring and you are too.  Have an amazing weekend and if the weather is nice, get outside with those you love and explore this beautiful world!

Happy crafting!

  1. This is absolutely adorable! I think I may have to make some of these with the Hooligans! We’re all about birds here these days, as we watch the nest of baby robins on our deck every day!
