Winter Birds

A few weeks ago we had a great day with friends learning about what birds do in the winter. After a little discussion the kids crafted a 3D bird - feathers and all! I love them! I'm tempted to have the kids make some more after the holidays and have them hang them from the dining room window. Perhaps we'll try an owl!

Basically cut out two bird shapes. Paint and decorate one. When it's dry, put the two pieces together and glue along the top edge. Stuff with crumbled paper or cotton balls and then glue the rest of the unglued edges together. Hang with string or twine. Thanks Laura! Love the idea.
