Robins and Your Value to God Bible Verse ~ Craft

Happy Spring! It's a beautiful time of year! The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing!
I just saw a robin a few weeks ago and it was such a thrill! I look forward the the long warm days!
After seeing that first Robin it made me desire to do a craft that focused around a robin/spring theme, and when I read this post at Sanctus Simplicitus I decided I just had to make the robin craft that was bouncing around in my head!!
So here is my newest creative brain storm....
I also added the Bible quote from Jesus Sermon on the Mount. ~ Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 
You may need to shrink the size when printing.

I love this Bible verse, but of course I explain to my kids that it doesn't mean you can sit around and wait for God to serve you! Even the robins have to work to find their food! The idea is that you trust God and remember that He loves you and will help in whatever way you need  (even a non-happy way) so you can become a better person and one day live with Him in heaven.  

For this craft you will need:

  • construction paper (yellow, light blue, red, and brown)
  • light brown paper to crumple and make a nest 6 in. x 2 in. in size (we used part of a lunch bag)
  • black crayon  (but light green, green, and brown - are optional)
  • the printable Matthew 6:26 cloud
  • stapler
  • glue
  • scissors
  • and a foot! ;-)  


Trace a foot onto brown paper. Cut it out.
Note: I got the idea to use a foot to form the bird

Cut out a red belly and a yellow beak for the robin. 
Glue them to the light blue paper as shown in the completed project.

Add an eye and crumple the piece of light brown paper. 
 

Staple the light brown paper down in the shape of a nest.
Draw legs on the robin. 

Cut out two or three eggs from light blue paper. 
With a black crayon, color them lightly
(using the side of the crayon) and add spots. 

Add the eggs to the nest.
Cut out and add the cloud with the Bible verse. 

You can stop there, or you can add tree branches and leaves....
Using brown and black crayon create branches.

With the light green and green crayons make leaves.
A circular motion is simple and easy. 

Here's a few examples: 

Happy Spring! 
Pray for me to always trust in God's love and protection!
I will pray for you.

  3. Thanks for the idea! Due to the sizes of my children's feet, I am going to alter by using the hand with the fingers closed (half of a praying hand).
