    A great place to see birds in action is at a birdfeeder. With this mobile, you can enjoy their colors, shapes, and markings any time you like.

    Make a birdfeeder. On construction paper, use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to outline a large birdfeeder. Color it with Crayola Slick Stix. Use Crayola Scissors to cut it out. Punch a hole in the top and string ribbon through it for hanging. Punch several holes along the bottom.

    Create birds. Outline at least six bird bodies on more paper. Make each one unique and colorful with Slick Stix. Cut birds out, turn them over, and color the other side. Punch holes in the heads of four birds.

    On waxed paper, outline bird wings. Color them and cut them out. Try different colors of Slick Stix on either side of the wings for a shimmery effect. Use a Crayola Glue Stick to attach wings to birds.
