kids club® craft stick birds

Step 1
Cut a 2½" x 2½" piece of chipboard. Lay it flat on your work surface and cover it with glue. 
Step 2
Lay seven craft sticks, side-by-side, across the chipboard. Make sure to line up the bottoms of the sticks so they are straight. Let dry. 
Step 3
Glue another craft stick to the back, extending from the bottom.
 
TIP: Use image as a guide. 
Step 4
Paint the craft sticks with either Dandelion, Light Green or Crisp Blue paint. Let dry. 
Step 5
Glue feathers to the back, on either side, for the wings of the bird, so they can be seen from the front.

TIP: You can eliminate the feathers and cut wing shapes from foam. Glue in place on the front of the bird.
Step 6
Glue a feather, or feathers, to the back center craft stick, so it can be seen over the top of the bird.

TIP: You can eliminate the feathers and cut a foam shape instead. Glue in place on the back of the bird. 
Step 7
Glue a pair of wiggle eyes in place. Let dry. 
Step 8
Cut out foam shapes to decorate your bird, such as a triangle for the beak, and half ovals for the feet.
