Bird puppet kids craft

Upcycle bottle tops and use them to make an adorable bird puppet kids craft. Toddlers and preschoolers will love making these easy, but very cute birds. We loved using our puppets for imaginative play and to sing the nursery rhyme 'Two Little Dickie Birds".

You will need:

Choose some colourful feathers and stick them to the back of the bottle tops. We used sellotape, but when the children were playing with the puppets some of the tape came off, so maybe glue might work better.

Harry and Daisy have loved making up little puppet shows with these puppets.  Their puppet shows usually end up with the puppets bashing into each other though! Daisy has also enjoyed using them to act out the nursery rhyme 'Two Little Dickie Birds'.
