Our Experience With This Amazing Little Bird Craft
I have older children, kids in elementary school. They are in kindergarten and first grade, but they still love this fun paper bird craft. We made so many colorful birds, which was a great way to celebrate the spring season.
I also reminded them what letter bird starts with, a little letter recognition practice isn’t a bad things.
This simple projects didn’t require a lot. I just had to buy googly eyes, I had the toilet paper rolls, the paper, and glue on hand.
