Are you ready for a crafting adventure that’s both easy and enjoyable? This birdhouse craft for kids is the perfect choice!
This is a straightforward, fun activity that allows your kids to express their creativity while making attractive decorations for your home or garden.
This project isn’t just about crafting; It’s about spending quality time together, away from the usual digital distractions, engaged in something practical.
You’ll start by coloring the bird houses, setting a vibrant base for the colorful tissue paper decorations. This step is simple but effective, allowing each child to make their own mark with their favorite color.
Next, you’ll decorate with Mod Podge and tissue paper squares, turning ordinary birdhouses into extraordinary art pieces. This part is all about creativity and fun, as kids mix tissue colors and arrange their designs.
This step takes a little time, but it’s a lot of fun laying out the squares and figuring out the colors you want. Take your time and enjoy the craft. It also kept my daughter occupied for a long time – so that’s a bonus!
The protective layer of Mod Podge not only adds a professional touch to the craft but also ensures durability, making it a lasting memento of the time spent together.
So, gather your materials and get ready to set out on this birdhouse crafting journey. It’s an easy, enjoyable way to bond, learn and most importantly create lasting memories with your kids.
Let’s create and cherish these moments of shared creativity! This is a perfect spring or summer craft for kids. First, here’s what you’ll need.
collect these supplies
- Wooden birdhouses from craft stores – Dollar Tree also has them
- Tissue paper – various colors (or premade tissue paper squares)
- Craft Paint – Any Color
- Mod Podge – Any Formula
- paint brushes
- spray sealer (optional)
I chose white paint as a basecoat so that the colors of my tissue paper would pop more, but feel free to use a different color base – keep in mind that the base color will change the look of the tissue paper once mod podged because tissue paper Is translucent.
This fun craft is very customizable in terms of colors – you can even add embellishments if you want – like fake flowers, leaves or vinyl decals. A group of these are a lot of fun to see together. What colors will you use?
Hang some in the garden (you can seal them with a coat of Mod Podge Outdoors if you prefer), make a garland, or nail them to a tree.
