Although they call it summer theme decor at Red Ted Art, I think these pretty flamingos will work throughout the year! The craft is basically simple, but has repeated steps, which should be fun to keep kids occupied for a while!
2. Pipe Cleaner Flamingo Craft
We love how the furry pipe cleaners give these flamingos that feathery look, and the addition of a bright pink feather completes it! This is a good fine motor exercise for little hands, what with all the twisting and turning!
3. DIY Tissue Pom Pom Flamingos
A ready made pink tissue pom pom and some glitter paper turns into a glamorous piece of home decor in this craft from Frog Prince Paperie! Older kids can try making the pom pom on their own – search the net for tutorials.
