Have you spotted a robin yet? Word is, if you spot one first it’s good luck! Let’s make some spring robins to remind us what they look like.
• Construction paper – brown, red, blue, robin egg’s blue, orange beak
• Nest fabric, scraps of brown paper, hay…
• Glue, scissors
• Bead for eye (black) or marker
1. Trace the child’s foot on the brown paper, this will be the bulk of the robin’s body. Cut out.
2. Cut a red robin’s belly out to fill in the space from the foot arch and robin’s body.
3. Cut scraps up to create the nest. And cut robin egg’s blue circles out to used for any surprise.
4. Start to glue and create!
Another super cute idea is to create the whole footprint robin with paint! Use a baby or child's foot for a paint footprint like momstown Brampton did in their Baby Basics program – what a cute spring painting or card to make for someone!
