Today we are making a bird (or could be a chick or chicken, your choice, no judgement) out of a paper bag. Get ready to squawk!

Make sure to flip your bag so that the bottom flap is on the top. Cut the yellow construction paper in 2 rectangles to fit the body and flap of your paper bag. Then round off the corners if you'd like. Freehand cut 2 wings out of the same color. Use the orange paper to cut 2 feet and a small triangle for the beak. Arrange and glue everything down onto the paper bag, including the eyes. Make sure to glue the wings on the inside crease of the paper bag.
Birds come in all shapes and sizes, so you could make your bird look however you'd like. Talk with your kids about what kinds of birds you have seen together. Take a walk around your neighborhood and see how many different kinds of birds you can spot. A few good picture books about birds are Whose Chick Are You? by Nancy Tafuri (I love her books!), Pond Babies by Cathryn Falwell (another author/illustrator I love), and Wee Little Chick (the illustrations are too precious in this one). Happy bird watching!
