my little chickadees

This is a great springtime project I learned about on The Chocolate Muffin Tree. We used cardboard scraps to stamp out the tree branches, potatoes to stamp the chickadees' bodies (you could use ANY color of paint and call them ANY sort of bird!). We used very skinny pieces of cardboard to twist the tails and heads. Afterward, I gave them some Easter grass (LOVE that stuff!) and let them tear it up and make some "leaves" on their trees with it. Of course this could also be used as a nest as she does on the link above. I will post some more student examples once I have my camera back in working order!
