Why would you need a glitter birdhouse? I think the better question is why would you NOT need a glitter birdhouse?
Ok, so my daughter and I came up with this lovely fun craft idea! We got the small birdhouse on sale at michaels for $0.30! They are normally $1 to begin with so this is a very inexpensive activity.
You will need:
- White Elmer’s Glue (or other brand)
- Paint brush
This is super simple! Your house will be a glitter mess, so contain it to the dining room table or somewhere easy to clean up.
Have your little one paint part of the birdhouse with a light layer of glue. We did the roof first. Then shake glitter all over it. (We did it over a piece of copy paper so that we could funnel it back into the glitter jar when we were done.) Repeat process with each part of the house and a different color of glitter until you have achieved the results you want.
Ours didn’t turn out perfect, but four year olds don’t want perfect- they want to play with glitter!
