Free Custom Photo Calendars


With just four items you probably already have around your house, you can make these beautiful birds to perch on your window! If you like this craft, you’ll also like our Painted Turtle Rocks - another super-simple animal craft.

What You’ll Need:
*Coffee filters (2 per craft)
*Markers
*Tape
*Scissors

Preparation:
*Did You Know? Bugdies (or parakeets as they are called in the U.S.), are a very popular bird to have as a pet. Visit your local pet store and it's almost a guarantee they will have some for you to look at. Budgies are native to Australia. They can eat almost anything that people can, but should never have chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, or avocado. If you give a budgie a toy with a shiny surface, it will think there's another budgie to play with and ignore you!

Activity:
*Using markers, decorate both coffee filters. Fold both in half to make semi-circles.
*Cut one of the halved coffee filters in half to make two triangles.
*Tape one triangle to the front of the semi-circle for the head and one to the back for the tail.
*Add eyes and a beak to the head.
*Tape your budgie to a sunny window and enjoy the pretty colors!
*Send us a picture of your kids and their budgies and we may post it to our site! info@mycalendarmaker.com.
