Celebrating Spring with 15 Bird Activities for Kids

We're celebrating Spring with 15 of our favourite bird activities. Whether you're looking for outdoor activities or indoor crafts, there's something for all mini ornithologists to explore here.

:: Create a Birdwatching station to observe & record the birds in your garden.

:: Make some Wild Bird Pen Toppers to help you draw & record all your observations. These also double-up as great little storytelling puppets too.

:: Design some Paperclip Birds, perfect for some small world play.

:: This Garden Play scene is ideal to use with the Paperclip Birds, & even includes pop-up worms! You could create different scenes or landscapes, such as a forest, beach, or garden. A fun way for children to consider which birds would visit each landscape, & what food would be available for them?

:: Create a pop-up Bird Puppet in a nest using a paper plate & twigs.

:: Create a No-Sew Sock Owl with recycled odd socks from your laundry basket.

:: These Owl Peg Puppets made from recycled materials are great for indoor or outdoor play.

:: Collect some bird feathers & create your own fabulous feather quill pen 

:: Take 5 minutes to play Birdwatch Bingo with friends using this free printable sheet. How many birds will you spot in your outdoor area?

:: Create some Play Dough Owls with a few recycled buttons & homemade play dough.

:: Explore the magic of mud in your backyard & build a Nest for the Birds.

:: Create some outdoor art with these Nature Owls.
