The 100th Day of School is a great time to celebrate and break out the art supplies for some fun and creativity. The 100th Day of School Feathered Friend is a great example of how little learners can use their imaginations to show their 100th Day pride. With only a few easy-to-find materials and a lot of glue, your students can create their own feathered friends.
My Feathered Friend: 100th Day of School Craft for Kids
- Card stock
- Permanent marker
- Crayons or markers
- 100 Feathers per child
- Get a little bit of help with your bird drawing skills by visiting this kid-friendly drawing site that shows you how to make a goose out of the letter “b”. They also have instructions for making “Angry Birds” so your older students might like that variation a bit better. Draw your bird on the card stock with a pencil.
- After your fine soon-to-be feathered friend is drawn, trace the lines with a permanent marker.
- Now it is time to get gluing. Glue 100 feathers on your bird. They can be spread out, piled on top of each other, or artistically arranged. Let your students have fun decorating their birds!
- After the birds have been feathered, color in any areas of the drawing that are still showing. It is important to color after the feathers have been glued on, because the wax from the crayons can make it difficult for the feathers and glue to stick.
- Hang the dried papers on a bulletin board labeled with “We Flew Through the First 100 Days of School!” or “We Are Flying Through the Year!”
