Birds are flying creatures that attract us from the very beginning of our understanding of the world. Children, kids, and even the elders share a keen interest to fly. This flying attracted humans so much that artificial birds like airplanes are also invented. Using popsicles to make these below-made crafts can be really exciting and creative too. The basic requirements to make each of the crafts are popsicle sticks, colored feathers, 3d eyes, painting colors, pompoms, decorative stones, foam sheets, and origami papers of different kinds as per needs.
Utility of the craft: The same designed birds in a cluster can be used as wall decor or as wall hangings as well. These can be used as props/ tools for the kids’ education and they can also be gifted to kids as a token of appreciation as well. Birds are more like free- spirits without any boundaries, which attracts positivity and creativity to our life, which can be taught to children of any age.
Don’t skip the craft, read it until you reach the ending part… I have mentioned the amazing role of birds/peacocks in our day-to-day energy vibes.
