5. Bible Lesson
Much like the falcon, a hawk was considered an unclean animal based off what they ate. These birds were not used during sacrifices and were not to be eaten.
Based on Leviticus 11:21, it says, “Only this you are to eat out of all winged insects that go on all fours: what has a pair of legs with knee-joints above its other legs, to hop on the ground with.”
This is a great way to teach your little ones what is good and what’s not to eat. Perhaps that banana is a better option than the sweets. It looks good, but it may not be good for their little tummies.
Hawk Craft Supplies Needed:
- Card Stock Paper or Construction Paper

How to Make a Paper Hawk Craft
After you’ve printed your hawk template, go ahead and cut out the body parts.
Another fun way to enjoy this bird craft friend is to print the hawk template on white paper and color him first. Then cut and glue him together.
Next, glue on his wing.
Then his tail feather.
Next will be his beak.
After that, glue on his claws.
Finally, glue on an eye. If you want to spruce him up a bit, use fun googly eyes.
