Easy Paper Birds
My 15 month old loves birds. He loves watching them, hearing them, and looking at them in books. I have been having a hard time keeping him on his changing table for diaper changes and I am constantly fighting him so I had the idea to hang birds from his ceiling.
Now I just had to figure out how to make birds to hang from the ceiling without actually buying them or having to do origami (not my thing!).
I had a few friends over and I was talking to them about it and one of them just started cutting some scrapbook paper into a bird shape. It ended up being perfect so I traced multiple birds and cut them all out. I was so focused in my thought of making it 3D that I didn't even consider something so simple.
After all of the birds were cut out I poked 2 holes in the middle and thread fishing line through the holes from the top and tied them at the top of the bird and then tied a knot at the length where I wanted to hang them from the ceiling.
I used a white push pin to hold them on the ceiling. They look like birds and fly when a breeze blows. He loves them and they keep him entertained while I change his diaper!
