Paper Birds

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Here's a super-simple way to assemble a flock of featherless friends. This nearly no-mess project is easy enough to make in minutes and lets kids add lots of inspired elements of their own.


  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Colored paper clips
  • Tape
  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch or pushpins


  1. For each, draw a bird figure on a piece of scrapbook paper (or download our template). Cut out this figure, trace it, and cut out the matching shape.
  2. Bend a colored paper clip or two into feet and tape them to the back side of one figure. Use a glue stick to join the two matching figures, sandwiching the paper clip legs between them.
  3. Make an eye with a hole punch or pushpin and adjust the legs so that the bird can stand on its own.
