Roundup of Bird Crafts for Young Children

Round up of easy bird crafts for young children

This Roundup of Bird Crafts for Young Children was created as a resource of easy crafts for little hands. Young children are fascinated about birds as they point them out flitting from branch to branch in their nature walks or even their own backyards. We hope to encourage that curiosity with this roundup of crafts geared to younger children’s abilities.

Check out a website called  Youth Squad that has a blueprint for individuals or groups geared to different ages working together or independently as they explore the world of birds and many other topics.

Youth Squad has a program to help kids and their friends to explore new things. Your little ones can earn a Person Helper Patch that they can proudly display on a tote or hat.  Getting involved in the program can be a one time activity or a longer commitment to a cause that you and your family or organization feel dedicated to.

Free Kids Crafts has created a set of free Printable Bird Coloring Pages for young children. This Hand and Footprint Crow takes hand and footprint art to a less messy way of getting the kids involved. This Bluebird is made from a folded paper plate and is perfect for young crafters. Our national bird, the Bald Eagle, is another paper hand and footprint craft.
