I love this idea of just letting them paint the feathers on a paper plate! Cutting out a million feathers gets old quick!
I feel like most of my crafty things with the kids are using the same materials over and over - paper, crayons, glue, and paint. Using beans or pasta is something different that I think they will really enjoy!
This one would be great to do after a nature walk to collect leaves!
And although this might be a little difficult for the kids...I think this is one I'd like to try...
