Spring brings the birds - and momstown has created lots of 'pretend' ones with kids at home!
What you need:
- Construction paper
- Pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Pom poms
Cut out a bird shape from the construction paper, then glue on googly eyes, feathers, pom poms, whatever your 'bird' would like to look like! Use pipe cleaners for legs.
Feathers provide a great sensory experience for younger ones. You can buy them at craft or dollar stores fairly inexpensively. Take a small tub and fill it with feathers for your child to touch and feel. You can also talk about the different colours and look at all the parts of a feather.
Here's another use for feathers - make an "F is for Feather" craft and use feathers to fill in the letter. You can do both upper case and lower case. Thanks to When You Never Expect Two for the photo!
