Fan-wing Bird Craft

Even though there is still snow on the ground, the birds are coming back to the frigid Midwest. 

I’m sure they aren’t thrilled to be here, neither am I. 

But just seeing them makes me know that spring will soon be here.

Make these bright and colorful “flying” birds to decorate your classroom.

glue, string, and markers or rubber stamps
