What you will need:
Painted canvas (we used 12 x 24 in)
Various colors of card stock or poster board
Many shapes in different sizes and colors from cut from card stock (you can use a stencil or trace things from common household items. A hole puncher is great for the eyes!)
Outline bird bodies onto the card stock. We decided to free hand draw the bodies to make them unique. Need some help? Try these outlines to guide you. Then, cut them out.
Sort your cut-out shapes by color.
Place the cut-out shapes onto the bird bodies anywhere you want them… go ahead, get funky! Once you have them were you like them, glue them down.
Adhere the birds to the canvas with your glue stick (or sticky tac if you prefer to use your canvas again).
