All you need is a clothespin and 3 popsicle sticks.
Cut 1/2 inch off of the end of one of the popsicle sticks and cut the rounded end off the other side. Have your kids paint the popsicle sticks and clothespin.
Hot glue the two whole popsicle sticks near the opening of the clothespin to form the wings. Glue the shorter rectangular popsicle stick on the back and if your kids really, really, really have to have a tail with the part standing up, glue the 1/2 inch piece on standing up.
This is a perfect craft when you’re stuck indoors due to rain, snow, or extreme summer heat! Thank you iCraftGifts for the fun idea.
