One of my favorite crafts my son ever made for me was a birdhouse. He actually helped build it and then painted it all by himself. I had to be a birdhouse because he knew I had a collection of birdhouses and he wanted his to be up on the shelves too! I still have that birdhouse- it’s one of my favorites and most colorful!
If you’re looking for a fun and easy craft to make with your kids, this birdhouse is perfect. Make it for mom for Mother’s Day or just make it to celebrate spring!

Use the house template to cut out the house’s pattern. Click here to print it out.
Take a red craft paper and place it over the birdhouse pattern.
Wrap the house pattern using the red craft paper.
Now cut out a circular piece from the middle part of the birdhouse pattern.
Now cut out a 2 inch width blue paper strip. The strips length should be same as the circles circumference.
Now glue the paper strip inside the circular cut area.
Then take another blue piece of paper slightly larger than the circle, and glue it on the back of the birdhouse.
Take 10 Popsicle sticks and slightly cut the tip of them to make the edges flat.
Glue the Popsicle sticks on top of the birdhouse as the roof of the house.
Use paints and markers to decorate and add a little detail to the birdhouse.
Use the owl template to print out the owls pattern on a thick white paper. Then cut it out and paint it with acrylic paint or water colors.
Then glue a thin sponge on the back of the owl and then glue the bird to the birdhouse.
And there you go. Your birdhouse is READY!
Be sure to pin for later!
