Darling handprints and colorful feathers make our Handprint Paper Bag Bird Craft a super cute spring bird craft. They’re so easy to make, too, you’ll want to make a bird in every color there is.
I love really simple crafts that don’t need a lot of steps to make them stunning. And there’s not a lot to this bird craft. Some markers, of course the handprints, and a beak. All in bright, bold colors that turn a simple paper bag into a beautiful bird.
Make a Bird Craft with a Paper Bag
To make our Handprint Paper Bag Bird Craft you will need a paper lunch bag, cardstock in assorted colors, markers in assorted colors, scissors, and a glue stick.
We also used these fun small googly eyes with eyelashes, but normal googly eyes would work, too.
Colorful Bird Craft Supplies Needed
- Paper bag
- Cardstock – assorted colors
- Markers – assorted colors
- Googly eyes, small
- Glue stick
Paper Bag Bird Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin by folding a sheet of colorful cardstock in half.
Trace the little one’s handprint.
Cut out the handprint so that there are two.
From the same sheet of cardstock, cut out a triangle beak along the fold as well as a spiky feather for the top of the bird’s head.
Now, use the markers to form wavy lines along the bird’s body to resemble colorful feathers.
Next, glue the handprints along the sides of the paper bag.
Glue the beak in place, along with googly eyes.
And glue the feather in place on top of the bag.
A flock of the most colorful spring birds! These would make such fun puppets, flying through the air.
