These easy paper roll birds are perfect as a fun spring craft for at home or for preschools too! Each bird turns out so beautiful and unique and children can switch up their own designs to make their favourite kinds of birds. My kids really enjoyed making these. We looked at pictures of different birds on google and tried to copy them – we made a robin, a peacock and some parrots. I just love how these turned out!

How to make these cute paper roll birds
Start by taking the paper rolls and cutting them down to the desired size. Now it’s time to coat them in the coloured paint before putting them aside to dry.
Once the paper rolls are dry, cut out two little bird’s feet and glue them to the bottom of the roll.
Now its time to give the birds a face! Add two eyes, a beak and any other facial features.
Finish off the paper roll birds by adding some feathers to Make a tail and optionally some wings! How adorable are these cute little critters?
