Blue Bird Costume

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Transform your child into a dashing bluebird with face paints and feathers.


  • Dark green face paint
  • Blue face paint
  • Makeup brush and sponge
  • Hat or headband
  • Craft feathers
  • Hot glue


To create the bird's eyes, use a makeup brush and dark green face paint to color your child's upper and lower eyelids. Keep the shape circular, not oval.

Brush on a beak using the same paint shade as the eyes. Start by covering the lower portion of your child's nose. Work downward across the center of his mouth, tapering the beak to a point in the center of his chin.

Cover the rest of his face with blue face paint -- use a sponge for the larger areas and a makeup brush for touching up around the eyes and beak.

Make the feathered cap by hot-gluing craft feathers onto a headband or an old knit hat.
