Happy Mother's Day- Hugging birds


I'm a bit late posting this but here it is nonetheless. 
A quick Mother's Day art lesson with  delightful results that every Mom will love!

I found this super sweet idea of a hugging momma and baby bird on the Hungarian craft website Krokotak.
You can find the lesson HERE and the printable birds template HERE.
I traced the template but left out the eyes/beak so the students could draw 
those in themselves instead- giving it a bit more of their personality.
They colored the birds using wax crayons. They drew on the eyes/beak with markers.


Cut out around the bird and fold the momma bird wings over.


Make sure to color the back of the momma bird wings.


Then the birds are glued onto a larger sheet of white paper. Using a black markers, they drew in details: a landscape setting, sun, clouds, flowers, whatever. 
I encouraged them to think about some things/objects that their Mom likes.
Finally, they colored in the entire drawing using wax crayons or colored pencils. 
They could also write any type of message for their Mom.


The whole project took about 2 periods.













I love the sweet faces on this one!



Cute expressions on these guys as well! It's a mountain in the background :)
