This game is for the birds! Kids will use their creativity making this game and improve hand-eye coordination, too.
Have an adult help cut cardboard tubes with Crayola® Scissors. Cut tubes into five or more pieces, each at least as long as your hand. Make tubes different lengths.
To form the birds' open mouths, cut a short slit in one end of each tube. Bend down the cut edges to form a triangle opening.
At the other end of each tube, cut out a triangle for the beak. Fold in half. Use Crayola School Glue to attach the triangle to the outside edge of the bent cardboard mouth. This forms the bottom part of each bird's beak. Dry.
Cover your work area with newspaper. Paint each bird a different color with Crayola Washable Kids' Paint and Paint Brushes. Dry.
Use Crayola Washable Markers to draw the eyes. Below the open mouths, number tubes for scoring, such as 5, 15, 25, 50, and 100.
Stand the bird tubes next to each other with their mouths facing up. Ask a friend to hold them while you wrap tape around the bottom to keep them in place.
To make the bird nest, roll down the top of a large brown paper bag. Place the bird tubes in the center and fill the nest with crumpled newspaper.
Make pretend bird-food balls about the size of a marble from aluminum foil. Place the hungry birds on the floor and take turns feeding them. Keep score as you play.
