Make a Hummingbird Sipper
Your child can pretend to be a hummingbird or butterfly sipping nectar with this simple recycling craft.
Materials
  • Cereal box
  • Drink
  • Markers or crayons
  • Modge Podge, a clear non-toxic sealant
  • Paint brush
  • Straw or water bottle with a straw attachment
Steps
Step 1
Before the kids are around, prepare cut out flower shapes from a cereal box.

The flower needs to be about four inches across.

Then punch a hole in the middle of the flower that is the same size as your child's straw.

Step 2
Encourage the kids to decorate the flowers any way they'd like.
They can use markers, crayons, paint or any other art supplies.
Step 3
Paint the flowers with a sealant to keep the art from running.
Modge Podge looks like white glue but dries clear.
Step 4
Enjoy your sipper!

It makes the drink even more fun!

This is a good activity as part of the Bird Picnic.
