Keep your toddler happy on rainy days by making these pretty paper birds. Now, let’s get crafty…
Draw half a circle for a bird’s body on bright paper.
Add a head and a beak.
Cut out the bird. Then, erase any pencil lines.
Fold another piece of paper in half.
Draw a wing and cut it out. Don’t forget to cut through both layers.
Make a hole in the bird’s back using a hole puncher.
Push some thread through the hole for hanging.
Spread glue along the edge of each wing and press them on.
Then voila, you have a hanging, fluttery friend!
