Simple Backyard Bird Mobile

Simple Bird Craft

The birds are so loud. Have you noticed? This time of year I love to have the windows open but the birds are so noisy I can hardly focus on anything else so, okay birds, you win! Here is a simple bird craft to go with all that tweeting…

Bird Mobile Craft

What you’ll need…

Construction paper, scissors, staples, and white thread

Here’s how… 

Cut a bunch of 1 by 9 inch strips in different colors and a bunch of 18 inch lengths of thread then construct your birds as shown in this video…


Once you have 10 or so birds you can complete your mobile. I simply arranged and taped each thread to the ceiling at varying lengths. I love mobiles. Glittering Muffins shared a fun dinosaur mobile idea this week.

Looking for a book to go along with this craft? Check out this beautiful bird alphabet book I found (affiliate link)…

    • Lol, that would be startling! A bird flew into our house once when I was very little. It was a big event!
