A "Cheep" Spring Craft!



Spring is the perfect time to hatch a few chicks of your own.  Inspired by a few idle hands and a rainy day, we took advantage of the indoors and crafted our own little flock.  This was a simple activity that took very little supplies and time.  We also applied a few fliers to our May Day cards!



I remembered seeing a similar craft using circles to create birds and that was my inspiration.  I couldn't recall if they used fingerprints or paper to hatch a gaggle of cuteness, so I decided to use paper circles in varying sizes and colors to review a few preschool concepts (circles, colors, sizes, etc.) with the children.  The children enjoyed this a lot and even talked about the different types of birds they have seen. 

To make this simple preschool craft, you will need the following items:


  • construction paper (cut into circles and small triangles for the beaks)
  • scissors
  • cupcake liners
  • glue
  • markers or crayons
To construct a nest full of these peepers, you need to follow these steps:
  • Cut a circle.  We used primary colors and varying sizes.
  • Using an orange piece of paper, cut a small triangle for the beak.  We folded ours over so the mouth could open. 
  • On another sheet of paper, glue down the circle and attach your beak with glue.

  • Carefully, cut a cupcake liner in half.
  • Attach the "wings" to your bird with a small dab of glue.
  • Take a marker and draw eyes and legs for your bird.
  • Let dry and display.


Have you made anything lately?  Do you have any fun Spring activities you would like to share?
