We’re getting ready to start our Birds & Eggs preschool monthly theme tomorrow and I couldn’t help but put together some fun Bird Coloring Pages to go along with it.
It’s my favorite time of the year. The weather gets warmer and we start spending more time outdoors. You know what that means, don’t you? Spring and baby animals!
Kids are so fascinated by animals and especially ones they can actually observe throughout their everyday lives. I know that we see blue jays and robins as well as the occasional cardinal. Hummingbirds are a common sight too. And every once in a while, we’ll see some birds that are bit rarer around here.
Last summer we were even blessed to have a mama bird make her nest in the birdhouse on our deck.

Preschoolers and kindergartners are curious and birds make a great subject to explore together as a family. Take a nature walk with your little kids and talk about birds and eggs. Grab a pair of binoculars and go birdwatching or even sit down with your journal and sketch birds that you see in your backyard. And of course, on a rainy day, you can’t beat making a nest of pillows and cuddling up together with a stack of good books.
- Why do birds build nests?
- How do birds fly?
- What do birds eat?
Those are just a few of the questions that the little guy has asked recently. He’s definitely inquisitive and I’m willing to bet that your little kids are too. We’ve actually read quite a few books about birds and eggs recently. You know, because it’s such an interesting topic to study.
Did you know that birds are the only animals that have feathers, but not all birds fly? I was actually rather surprised to learn that baby birds have an egg tooth that helps them to break out of their shell. Those are just a few of the fun facts that we’ve learned in the last few weeks.
Birds Preschool Theme Ideas
- Decorate a plastic bottle to look like a baby bird and then practice using tweezers to feed the baby bird pretend worms. What a great way to practice not only fine motor skills but also explore counting and one to one correspondence. You can check out this activity here.
- B is for Bird and these craft stick bird puppets are just too cute! You can find the instructions here. Birds are an awesome way to introduce the letter B and there’s also a cute little rhyme to act out when you’re finished.
- If you and your little kids love process art, then you’re definitely going to want to check out our bird feet invitation to create here. We used several common everyday items to create our very own bird feet. It was a wonderful experience and such a fun way to encourage creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
- Cut a paper plate in half and let your preschoolers and kindergartners make their own bird craft using feathers and of course glue. We’ve also done this with construction paper. You can see an example of one of our bird crafts here.
- This owl-inspired invitation to create, which you can find here, is another example of using supplies that you wouldn’t normally think to use and definitely not together. Open-ended art is so important for little kids and this fun project is a perfect example. At this age, it’s all about the experience not the end product.
