|My three year old's robin craft|
After a trip to the library searching for Easter, spring, and robin books, I brought home Little Robin Redbreast: A Mother Goose Rhyme illustrated by Shari Halpern. My son adored this book the second we started reading it and I did too!
Since spring is here, I thought it would be a great time to make a cute robin craft out of paper plates! My son was super excited when he woke up and saw the table all ready to make his craft this morning.
For this craft you will need...
4 paper plates
Red and Orange Construction Paper (I chose to use craft foam)
|First I gathered up all of the materials. I cut out the center of one plate for the robin's head, traced it on red foam for the belly, and cut out a beak for the bird.|
|My three year old started by painting the robin's head.|
|Next, he painted the body.|
|He added eyes and a beak to the head.|
|He added the red belly!|
|My job was to paint both wings and make the legs. I used a pipe cleaner folded in two and added a little piece to each end for the "feet".|
|We glued the head on and I stapled the wings and legs.|
We hung up our robin to remind us that spring is here. We need the reminder since it is a bit chilly here today! Hopefully, it will warm up a little today so we can go for a walk and look for some real robins!
