Ever since our boys were little, they’ve been interested in birds. Backyard Birds became even more exciting when we studied John James Audubon a couple of years ago. In fact, bird watching has become such a wonderful part of our homeschooling even Bells has taken an interest in it already. You can add fun bird activities into your day with these free backyard bird printables and ideas. Have fun!
When I saw this Backyard Birds Toob I knew I wanted to do something special that all of the kids could enjoy.

For younger children, you can have them match 1 picture card with the correct bird. As they get more comfortable and for older children, you can use the cards as 2 part cards and then move on to using the whole set as Montessori 3 part cards. It’s smart to laminate all of your cards to make them sturdier for children to work with and last.
To go along with these bird activities, we read a few of our favorite bird books.
I suggest picking up a Birdfeeder that can hang somewhere the family can enjoy. We have spent countless hours bird watching right outside our window. Did you know that many backyard birds will come back every spring year after year to the same general area? We love that!

The Backyard Birds Toob contains seven hand painted miniature replicas:

I have including these names on the free bird watching chart, along with empty spaces for you to add your own backyard birds. Bird watching can be so much fun for the whole family. Add in a journal for creative drawing or writing about the birds you and your children see.
