I love spring, and as I sit here typing I can hear birds chirping outside and see the flash of red as the cardinals flit by my window. It’s raining today, so I thought it was the perfect excuse to do some bird crafts for kids, like our bird feeder wreath!
(And it’s the perfect compliment to our 50+ Bird Activities post from last week.)
So far, we have made our bird seed wreath, clay nests, and PB&J bird seed ornaments – and I’m so excited at this list, there are several ideas that I think my kids would love!
Bird Arts And Crafts for Kids
A giant bird art project your kids are going to love. Reuse some old cardboard boxes and let the kids make their own awesome bird creations!
These bird nests from Art Bar are just gorgeous, I can’t believe they are made out of recycled paper. What a great way to repurpose that stack of magazines you have in the corner.
I can’t pass up a great bird process art idea – check out this idea to paint with bird feathers to go along with an awesome book!
A snack and a craft? Celery stamp art to make this wonderful owl craft as an addition to your child’s art collection!
Add a little science to your bird art and crafts this spring. I adore how this fun momma uses some wonderful bird books to help her little ones learn more about how bird nests are made – and I love those little pops of colour.
Use simple templates to create beautiful bird garland for your home as a great way to liven up your space. (Another great use for all of that leftover scrapbook paper – or even your child’s artwork.)
You know we love glitter! These perfect peacocks are an awesome addition to our bird craft list.
We made these kid-made bird feeder wreaths last year and the birds LOVED them. And they are beautiful!
Ella is going to love these sweet little blue jay finger puppets. You can see how simple they are to put together just by the picture above!
Another great use for that stash of craft sticks! DIY bird feeder with beautiful hemp cord is the perfect addition to your bird watching outdoor space.
The kids love tracing their hands and it’s a great pre-writing activity. This is a great baby chick bird craft to help them display their sweet little finger this spring!
Do you have extra 2 liter bottles? Here’s a great idea for repurposing those recyclable materials into a colourful bird feeder.
I need this little guy in my collection today – probably more for the older crafter, though. This is a great step by step tutorial to create felt cardinal bird (which would look so cute in one of those kid-made wreaths).
This is a great way to use those old CDs. A simple little bird craft that leaves plenty of room for creativity and uniqueness for your kids!
Another peacock option! I love the use of sequins on this fun paper bag peacock bird craft! Such a great accent for a fun spring activity.
Here’s another great spring bird craft for your kids. I know mine would love to make their own versions with plenty of creative touches and fun colors.
Miss V (one of my daycare girls) really enjoys doing handprint art. This mallard duck bird art is going to be a huge hit with her and the other kids!
Use your leftover bird feathers and craft sticks to make this fun DIY bird craft!
