What I love about this Bird Game is that it gives them enough options that they can use their creativity to come up with many different versions of a "bird." Enjoy!
cardboard (I used the flaps of small box)
Kitchen shears (much easier to cut with than regular scissors!)
acrylic paint (craft or art)
paintbrushes, cup, water
OPTIONAL (to make a bag):
2 squares of fabric (small--I used discarded t-shirt sleeves)
TOP: wings (I did lots so I could paint them different colors)
MIDDLE: legs, 2 pairs of feet, one pair of shoes, 1 eye and 2 different beaks
BOTTOM: Large wings
R. SIDE: Body, head, eye
1.Cut your letters out of felt and hot glue them on the bag leaving room on the sides for sewing.
2. you can make a little bird face too if you want (see below)
3. If you need to, fold over the top edges of your fabric to create a seam.
4. Sew on your velcro pieces so that they will match up when your bag is finished
5. With like sides together, sew the 2 pieces on 3 sides. FINISHED!

This is great to bring in the car, to church, or anywhere else they need to be entertained on the go!
