Paper Piecing Robin

The European robin with its sweet looking face never ceases to charm adults and kids alike. Kids can make a paper robin by using pieces of scrap colored card and pencils and then hang it in their window or room to celebrate spring.

 

 

Craft for Kids - Paper Piecing Robin

For this project you will need:

- heavier card so that the robin has a bit of stability in the colors of brown, tan, light beige, dark orange, grey and black
- color pencils in colors similar to the paper but only a bit darker plus a white pencil to highlight the eye of the robin
- stick glue
- scissors
- hole puncher

If you wish the robin to be seen and look finished from both sides, trace all but the body piece twice. Each doubled piece should be traced reversed.

Ages 8 and over
