Since February is National Feed the Birds Month, that is when we have one of my favorite preschool storytime themes: Birds.  There are so many fun books available for the storytime!  As I was preparing for this storytime, I searched my Pinterest board of bird themed crafts.  That is where I saw this adorable project based on the art of Charley Harper.  The project was completed by early elementary children, so I knew that if I wanted to do this for my preschoolers, I would have to find to adapt it.  So, I pulled out some scrap paper, a pencil, and a sharpie and started drawing.

This is the finished product, pasted on a sky blue background. Each of the pieces has been cut so the children just need to glue them to the background and then draw their own embellishments.

Don't worry.  I decided to make it a little easier on those who want to do this craft.  Here are the various pieces.

Of course, I can't tell you about a preschool storytime theme and not share my storytime plan (click link for PDF).
