Students choose what kind of bird charm they want. I have them cut out themselves if they can or teacher can pre-cut. I have them color their birds using colored pencils. Cut out a slightly larger circle for a border, see pattern page. Glue 3-4 feathers to the bottom of the border circle and glue the bird cut out to the top. Use your choice of beading materials. I like straw or pony beads and rex-lace it is the easiest. I always put a bit of masking tape at the end of the rex-lace (plastic cording) for beading with young children ease! You can hole punch and thread the lace thru the bird charm. Makes an adorable costume necklace for your November feast activities. See photo below for turkey crown idea.
