Hummingbird Paper Craft
contributed by Leanne Guenther
This is a simple cut and paste paper craft good "just for fun" or a bird theme made from a basic egg
You can turn it into a handprint craft by replacing
the wings with handprints traced onto a piece of paper.
- something to color with if using the B&W version,
- You can use brass tacks ("brads") instead of glue to attach the wings if you want them to be moveable.
- Print out the craft template of choice.
- Color (if using the black and white version of the craft) and cut out the template pieces.
- Glue the hummingbird together in the following order:
- Glue the smaller egg as the chest onto the egg shaped body
- position your egg so it is upside down (the thinner tip is pointed down)
- feet onto the bottom of the body
- Glue the tail behind the feet
- Glue the eyes onto the body
- Glue the beak onto the body
- Glue the wings onto the body.
You can use the template piece or trace a hand onto a piece of
paper and use that as the wing
- See picture on the template for further help.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
