How to make Paper Heart Bird Craft for kids – Easy and so cute!

This paper heart Bird craft for kids is so cute and easy! Its a great Valentine day, Easter or spring craft for kids. All you need is papers, glue and a scissor so can be made with materials easily available at home. 

Today I am going to talk about how we (my toddler who is a little over two years old and me) made these colorful birds using circle and hearts (colored paper cut out in Heart and circle shape).

This is a cut and paste craft, easy enough for toddlers. You can also involve preschoolers and older kids in this craft as they can cut and paste shapes on their own.

If you believe its too early to introduce crafts to your kid, do read why I feel doing activities with our kids at an early stage is important for their growth development.

We have a balcony at the front of my house where we keep food and water for birds. So everyday you can see some birds sitting there – eating, drinking and chirping.  Somehow the sound of a bird chirping is a very happy sound and we love it .

So this time we decided to make cute smiling birds and tried some different shapes to make this easy bird craft. It was really a fun craft for me and my toddler.

So let us get back to the main topic, how to make a DIY Cute bird craft for toddlers and preschoolers.

How to make Paper Heart Bird Craft for kids

Make body of birds

Cut four circle or oval shapes (two small and two big) from the yellow and purple construction paper, this will serve as the body of the birds.

Make wings of bird

Cut two pair of heart shapes of equal size from the purple paper and blue paper for wings of birds.

Make Nose

Cut two small diamond shapes from red paper and fold it into half for making bird’s nose.

Make eyes of birds

Cut small round shape from black paper for eyes of birds, if you want you can use googly eyes as well.

Note – For toddlers and kids who have not yet learnt how to use scissors,  you will need to do the cut out and you can take their help in pasting. For older kids they can cut shapes on their own.

Make Paper Birds by pasting

Sit with your toddler and take his help in applying glue stick and stick these coloured shapes (circle and heart) to make the bird’s body. In the beginning you can help him out but soon he will turn into a professional and would like to do everything himself.

While pasting keep discussing the shapes, body parts of bird and colors with your toddler. You can talk to him and ask him questions like – where are bird’s hands  or wings?  Shall we stick bird’s eyes ? You can sing a rhyme.

Two little dickie birds sitting on a wallOne named Peter, one named Paul.Fly away Peter! Fly away Paul!Come back Peter! Come back Paul!


I saw a little bird go hop, hop, hop, I told the little bird to stop, stop, stop.
I went to the window to say ‘How do you do?’
He wagged his little tail and far away he flew!
