These easy paper roll birds are perfect as a fun spring craft for at home or for preschools too! Each bird turns out so beautiful and unique and children can switch up their own designs to make their favourite kinds of birds. My kids really enjoyed making these. We looked at pictures of different birds on google and tried to copy them – we made a robin, a peacock and some parrots. I just love how these turned out!

Heres what we used

  • Paper roll
  • Paints & paintbrush
  • Googly eyes
  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Feathers

How to make these cute paper roll birds

Start by taking the paper rolls and cutting them down to the desired size. Now it’s time to coat them in the coloured paint before putting them aside to dry.

Once the paper rolls are dry, cut out two little bird’s feet and glue them to the bottom of the roll.
