A birdhouse for Spring!

Last Saturday in The Creativity Club we did a cute birdhouse mobile for spring. I realised that I’m so taken with the idea that the smallies do something different like printing with inks, sewing and beading that we hardly ever do simple colouring in!

Colouring stuff in was one of my favorite things to do when I was 4 so I drew a simple birdhouse like the one I saw at dltk-holidays.com. You can download the template I drew here.

Start by glueing the paper onto a piece of cardboard. Then get out the crayons or pencils and colour away!

Next cut out the house and the three eggs. Punch a hole in the top of each egg and three holes in the bottom of the house. Thread the eggs onto some wool and attach to the house. Then you can put a loop on the top of the house to hang it up.

The smallies were all calling them cuckoo clocks and they actually do look really like cuckoo clocks! Super Cute!

    I love that little check shirted persons work , why do we lose the ability to stop drawing outside the lines teacher?
    your website is great, love all your special powers…

  6. I know! He’s so cute. I tell them all that there’s no problem if they colour outside the lines. I’d love to see if in 20 years time this sense of freedom has effected other areas of their lives!

    I came from Mise’s blog…what an adorable mobile..I must tell my school teacher friend..Is there alotta cork in Cork?

  9. Thanks Torie jayne!
    Hi Beatnheart, the necklaces you make are amazing. Theres not much cork in Cork! The name ‘Cork’ comes from the Irish ‘Corcach Mór Mumhan’, which means the ‘great marsh of Munster’ and refers to the fact that the centre of Cork city is built on islands, surrounded by the River Lee, which were marshy and prone to episodes of flooding.
    So interesting! x
