Kids craft – Little birds

painted birds

It’s been a little while but I got the paints out along with the brushes and put the kids to work. T is going to be 2 in January and I think he needs more experience with handling a brush. I found a nice idea by the Happy Hooligans of making owls using an empty toilet paper roll. We love all things to do with birds so this was a good project for us.

I cut some empty toilet paper rolls in half and gave the kids 2 pieces each to paint.

After that the kids put on eyes that were already prepared with double-sided tape. They glued on feathers and a beak. I helped T with the gluing, but he did the pressing.

He really got into it. Best of all, he knew they were birds and made lots of tweet sounds.
