Egg Carton Birds

These egg carton birds were inspired by the lovely Andrea (and her lovely daughter) at cider and faun. Not only can Andrea draw and paint, but the nature inspired activities she does with her daughter are unique and fun.

I gave the girls cardboard egg cartons and paint and let them go wherever their imaginations took them.



Fauna used acrylics to paint her birds and a permanent marker for the details on the owls.





And here is her King of the Chicks.


Araina made a whole flock of different types of birds; she made a robin, red-winged blackbird, bluebird, finch, cardinal and a crow. She preferred to paint with watercolors.





After the paint dried they spent the entire day playing with their new little bird friends.
