Kids’ Crafts: Flower Power

I know it won’t last forever, so we’re enjoying it while it lasts; going for nature walks, playing in the backyard, and taking lots of pictures of the beautiful flowers we find.

Here are some bird themed crafts to go along with your discussions and reading about birds this season.

This brightly painted bird house and wind chime would make a beautiful addition to your backyard bird habitat.
