Umbrella Bird Printable Craft

As a part of our Endangered Animals unit, we did this cute Umbrella Bird craft. Though the Umbrella Bird is not endangered, their numbers are unfortunately currently classified as ‘vulnerable’. Lorelai, my 5.5 year-old, is obsessed with animals of all kinds, so she was happy to get to paint this “cool” bird. She chose to paint him blue instead of black and he turned out really cute!
