handprint flamingos & ostriches

Carrying on with our bird themed crafts this week, we made some handprint flamingos and ostriches.

 Unlike the peacock, these ones were very easy to do. And really the only difference between the two birds are the colours of the handprints.

 Just have your child stamp their hand on the paper, and then depending on the child's age, they may be able to help put the finishing touches on the birds. Now, I cut the legs out of paper, but you could just as easily draw some legs on the bird. Then just cut a small beak and add a googly eye and you're done! So simple.

I added a small piece of ric rac to the neck of the ostrich for the feathers. And there you have it- another quick and easy keepsake craft.

Linking up with: ABC and 123 Learning & Tatertots and Jello
