Bird Crafts for Kids

Children love to learn about birds!  From the time they can look out the window and recognize moving creatures they fall in love with them.  Learning about birds opens the door to many other important concepts like the seasons, migration, taking care of young, nesting, and habitats.  Starting a backyard bird journal or simply looking up different kinds of birds for identification is a great way to ignite a love of science and creation.  We keep a handy Bird Guide near by our windows for a quick look up of each bird we see.  If you’re near the Pacific Northwest I highly recommend purchasing Birds of Oregon and a set of Timber Press Field Guides, they have amazing photos, thick glossy pages,  and enough information to last your children through adulthood.
