With Valentine’s Day literally right around the corner, this Paper Plate Valentines Craft Cute Bird craft is certain to be a blast!
If I can be honest with you…I like crafting about as much as my kids. Seriously. It’s one of those things that I think anyone, young or young at heart, should do on a continuous basis. Not only is it fun, but making crafts is a great stress reliever as well!
Anytime a holiday is coming up where there is crafting potential, I’m 100% game to make any and all of them. This is why I love this Valentine’s Cute Bird Craft. It’s simple, yet adorable – plus, it’s an awesome way to get some extra bonding and one on one time with my kiddos. (They grow up way too fast!)
Plus, with all the crafting bins full of stuff that we have in our house, I was lucky enough to have all these needed items already at home! You possibly might too since some of them are pretty common!
Have fun with this adorable Valentines craft! You won’t be able to stop smiling at your completed Paper Plate Bird!
