Spring is here and its time to welcome back the birds and other wild creatures that migrated south or have been hibernating. The first week of spring is a great time to teach about wildlife habitats (including your own backyard!) and the different ways that animals cope with winter and celebrate spring. Here are some bird themed crafts to go along with your discussions and reading about birds this season.
