Craft Spotlight: Color Reveal Birds


Get ready for an amazing feature post on our beautiful Color Reveal Birds! I have so many photos to share with you from this wonderful day. See our campers’ artwork and some step-by-step assembly of the birds.


The Color Reveal Birds feature a kit of 24 sheets. Each sheet has two parts: The main bird body, and its wings.


The best part is that at first, the Color Reveal Birds don’t look like much. Once you add markers, however, watch for emerging patterns!


Combine colors together! Color the bird’s head blue and its body red, then switch for another color–such as blue–for its wings!


Make sure you use thick markers that can cover a lot of surface area. The best effect is achieved when the entire bird is colored in.


We got many different kinds of designs!

Fold the bird’s body in half down along the middle.


There are two slots in the top of the bird’s body. These slots allow you to easily slip the bird’s wings onto the top.


In addition, there are two notches in the back that help secure the bird’s wings at the back. This will also help fan out the bird’s wings.


The top of the bird’s body features a hole punch that can be used to thread string through.


Knot the ends of the thread together.

A flock of birds are approaching!

They just loved posing with it!


Hang the birds from a classroom mobile or use to decorate a window!
