We sure love birds! We have had so much fun creating bird crafts for preschoolers over the years. In fact, you can find almost 100 of them on our website. Eeep! No wonder I’ve been given the nickname The Bird Lady by a few people.
I thought it would be awesome to put together a round up of our favorite bird crafts so you can easily see them all in one place and find exactly what you are looking for.
With over 75 bird craft ideas to choose from, kids will love creating some of these simple projects!
[This round up was originally published on July 19, 2014 and only included 11 bird crafts. It has since been updated to reflect the addition of more bird crafts on our website from over the years.]
