Our family has always enjoyed learning about birds. We have all kinds of birdwatching books at home to help us identify our backyard birds, and we even have our own free printable bird books to keep track of birds we’ve spotted. 

So I thought it’d be perfect to do a little bird craft with the kids to help decorate for spring! Theo, my 2 1/2 year old toddler, loved taking part in this craft! (This post contains affiliate links. Thank you so much for your support!)

Materials for Bird Craft

Directions for Bird Craft

1. Start out by making your birds. Cut out two circles for your bird- one for the head and one for the body. (I used our Fiskars Squeeze Punch to do this. One of my favorite crafting tools!)

2. Glue the two circles together.

3. Add some googly eyes and an orange beak.

6. Set your birds aside to dry and make your bird nest.

7. Cut out a nest shape from some brown construction paper. Glue scraps of brown yarn onto your nest. (This was Theo’s favorite part. He even made a connection with the craft! He ran off to his room and grabbed his ABC book, Alphablock, turned to the letter ‘n’ page, and pointed to the nest on the page!)
