Ideas for Preschool Northern Cardinal Craft

Below are a few simple ideas to use my easy cut and paste bird crafts with your preschool children and students.

1. Paper Plate Crafts DiY

Having a list of ways to use paper plates found around the home for DiY crafts with kids is an inexpensive way to encourage creativity and imagination. You can use my preschool cardinal craft printable during your paper plate crafts day.

Gather up all of your paper plates, and my many cut and paste bird craft templates to have a festive paper plate craft day with your family!

2. Winter Paper Art Projects

You’ll need all of the winter paper art projects available when the cold weather starts sneaking in. While some kids enjoy playing outside in the cold, they simply don’t last as long as they do during the warmer months.

That’s why I suggest you use my preschool Northern Cardinal craft and other toddler crafts on my site as part of your winter paper art projects at home.

3. Easy Painting Craft

Lastly, you can transform my preschool Cardinal craft into an easy painting craft. Rather than having your children color their cardinal, you can use toddler-friendly paints.

Have your preschooler take this cardinal craft printable to create their bird craft and then sit down with some paints to color their gorgeous bird with their favorite colors.

4. Bible Lesson

As we know it today many of the colors of our clothing and paint eventually fade. However, the colors on a bird, like a cardinal never do. Did it evolve or was it designed? Find out more information here and decide for yourself.
