Yesterday for our Spring Celebration we wanted a little something to go along nicely with our bubbles, egg-dying, and hunt.
So how about Bird Races?
You only need a plastic disposable cups, tape, straws, feathers, something for eyes, craft glue, and string.
First we taped a straw to the side of the cup. Positionally, this will be the back of the bird. You can trim the straw, just make sure it's a smooth cut so that it won't snag the string.
Then we cut out our desired beak shape, and taped the beak to the bottom of the cup - on top and underneath.
Glue on your eyes.
Put a ring of glue on the inside of your cup opening for tail feathers.
Add some craft glue to the sides, and attach feathers for wings.
Tie one end of a long string (however long you like) to the bottom of something (a fence, a table leg, etc) and then thread the string through your straw.
When everyone is ready,
let the race begin!
Bounce, tug, and shake your string until your bird finds his way to the end of the line!
Maybe a celebration of berries, nuts or gummy worms at the end of the race, hmmm?
