Craft Stick Spring Birds

Craft Stick Spring Birds on kixcereal.com

Ah spring! As the flowers begin to bloom and the birds begin to sing, the muddy landscape soon turns into an explosion of color! To celebrate all these fabulous colors, make some pretty spring birds from feathers and craft sticks. Your kids will love making these pretty birds and can put on a puppet show when they are all done!

How to Make Craft Stick Spring Birds

For each bird you will need:

Jumbo craft stick
Colorful craft paint
Feathers
Googly eyes
Orange construction paper
Tools: White craft glue, scissors

paint craft or popsicle sticks

Begin by painting the craft sticks whatever color you like. I like to match my paint colors with the feathers that I use, but there’s no rule that says you have to!

Look through your feathers and find some really fluffy ones for the tops of your birds’ heads. Trim with scissors if needed and glue to the back of the craft stick so that the fluffy feathers stick out over the top.

apply glue to stick for body feathers and wings

Turn the craft stick face up and apply glue to the front of the stick. Attach feathers along the body and out to the sides for wings.

Add googly eyes and cut out beak

Finally, add the googly eyes with glue and cut a simple beak out from orange construction paper then glue it on as well.
