It’s the second day of our A to Zoo Animals preschool monthly theme and today we’re learning about B is for Bird and doing a fun bird zoo craft. 

If you’re interested in seeing our first B is for Bird post, you can find that here.

Of course you can also check out our bird zoo craft from three years ago too. Spoiler alert: They’re so different compared to the ones that we made today. 

I still can’t wrap my head around how much the little guy’s changed. It truly never ceases to amaze me. Why do they have to grow up? Lol…

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

What you’ll need

  • Paper
  • Feathers
  • Craft Sticks
  • Markers or Paint
  • Glue
  • Tape

Here’s how to do it

Discuss

  • Where have you seen a bird sitting?

Make 

  • Invite each child to decorate two birds then attach craft sticks. 

Play

  • Invite children to use bird puppets as you recite the rhyme together. 
  • Insert children’s names into the rhyme. If desired, name a different body part each time. 

Observe

  • Did the child participate in saying the rhyme with you?
  • Did they use their bird puppets as props?

The little guy and I had a blast making the bird puppets as well as reciting the rhyme.

Two Little Birds

Two little birdies sitting on a knee,

(Hold birds on knees.)

One named Jack and one named Ann. 

(Wiggle one bird, then the other.)

Fly away Jack; fly away Ann,

(Fly one at a time from knee to behind back.)

Come back Jack; come back Ann.

(Fly one back out, then the other.)

Homeschooling is all kinds of awesome. Seeing your little kids at their best every day. Watching them grow and change, learn and play. I for sure feel so blessed to have this opportunity.

I was chatting with someone today who is very special to me. She lives not too far from us and the little guy adores her.

He always asks to go over and visit her. Of course just seeing the little guy with her and watching how they interact makes me realize that he’s becoming such a kind-hearted young man and that makes my mama heart so very proud.

She brought him a birthday present over the weekend and he made her a thank you card. It was totally sweet.

So many people have shared their opinions about homeschooling with me and every now and again I start doubting myself and questioning whether or not I really am making the right decision.

Let’s just say that knowing how much the little guy has grown in faith and how caring and compassionate he’s become totally solidifies my decision and makes me realize that I am indeed doing what’s best for my little kids.

Everyone is always so quick to question socialization, but I’m telling you it’s really not as big of a deal as it’s made out to be.

I’ve gotten to witness the little guy making friends with so many people in the last few years. Some are of course kids his own age, but quite a few are adults too.

Homeschooling obviously gives us lots of flexibility that we wouldn’t have otherwise.

This curriculum is so special to me because it makes it possible for me to spend less time planning and more time doing. As a homeschool mama, that’s obviously something that’s really important to me. 

Because let’s face it, I want to spend my time making memories with my little kids and experiencing life, not reading or researching and writing lesson plans.
