These colorful birds are so happy and cheerful! The best part — they were made using leftover color coding labels from the dollar store. Very inexpensive, since we had an entire pack of 225 of them for $1!
First, we cut a piece of blue construction paper in half to form two long rectangles. Then, Emily drew some “wires” with a black crayon.
Next, she started to cut up the labels. Half of a circle makes a body for each bird.
Place the bird bodies along the wire, or flying up in the air, as desired.
A sixth of each circle sticker makes a tail or wing for each bird, and one eighth forms the beak. Emily had no trouble cutting the stickers in half, and I helped cut the smaller pieces for her ahead of time. I love how she wanted to use different colors to make up each bird!
With a fine-tipped black marker, draw in the feet.
Welcome in the birds with your colorful and fun artwork!
We just love Spring, don’t you?
