Humming Bird Craft

I think this is a super way to get started talking about hummingbirds. First, we looked up what hummingbirds looked like, then we painted one. Cheyanne loved doing this.

We used : Black and white construction paper, water color paints, 3 muffins cups, scissors, markers and glue.

I drew an outline of the hummingbirds body on the white paper. Cheyanne painted the body and the 3 muffin cups. Allow paints to dry. Then draw on eyes and beak.

PARENT'S TIP: to keep water colors clean, when finished, go around the colors with a Q-tip.

Cut out body of the hummingbird and glue on to the black paper. Then fold 2 muffin cups in half for wings. And fold the third muffin cup in 1/4's for the tail. Glue on the wings and tail.

So cute! I've seen tons of butterflies with coffee filters but never a hummingbird. Adorable!
