15 Thanksgiving Crafts and Activities for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
We can't get enough of the stunning gourd birds featured on Maya*Made! Never before have we thought about turning simple autumn gourds into a flock of beautiful holiday birds, but we're definitely impressed.
To make your own, start by taking a trip into the woods to find your birdie's accessories -- Maya's clan used berries, leaves and pods with sturdy stems. Maya then poked holes into the gourds with a thumbtack (under her daughter's direction), and her daughter got to work on decking out their new flock of friends. Similar to a Mr. Potato Head activity, we have no doubt that these birds will look gorgeous as a holiday table centerpiece or on your mantle.
