Tissue Paper Birds – The Birds of Bethlehem

Tissue Paper Birds The Birds of Bethlehem

We read The Birds of Bethlehem by Tomie dePaola for the Virtual Book Club. This is a new book that just came out by Tomie dePaola. We made our own birds to watch over our Christmas this year.

What you need: tissue paper of various colors, bird pattern on wax paper cut out, and glue.

They each picked out a color to use for their pair of birds and then put the tissue paper on the birds.
