We were making a bird out of a cardboard roll when we realized that making the bird could be a fun game. We made two bird crafts, one is a simple cardboard roll craft and the other is a bird craft game.

  1. Cute idea! Going to need this to keep the kids busy and away from the TV this summer.


  2. So much fun and what a great idea for a toilet paper roll. Definitely have to make these with the boys. They would love to make red Cardinal birds (what they call them 🙂 )


  3. What cute ideas — the spinner is especially inventive. I bet my daughter would have fun with that!


  4. Omg how cute is this craft?!?! My daughter would love this.


  5. What a fun craft idea. I love bringing the outdoors in and since bringing a bird in our home is more than I’m willing to do ;), this is a great solution.
