Below are some templates to download to make  hanging birds like Peep from The Dawn Chorus, Robin from Robin’s Winter Song or the butterflies from The Butterfly Dance.

You can use anything to make the bird as gorgeous as possible, paint, pens, collage, feathers, goggly eyes and stickers are all good.

They make a great display, like this one in the window of Mostly Books.

If you prefer to draw your own robin, here is a simple step by step guide I did for the Guardian. How to draw a robin has come up with some lovely activities for Robin’s Winter Song, and Bloomsbury have some great activity sheets. Have fun!

Colour in the templates below, or draw your own beautiful patterns.

Cut out the butterflies or birds, glue the bodies together and fold out the wings.
