How to Make your own You & Me Family Flock

Kids and adults can paint their own family flock, together! Adults can paint a polka-dotted mom or dad bird on one canvas while kids can paint their own loving baby bird on another. Don't forget to use bright, seasonal colors to bring your family of birds to life!
  • 1 Draw birds on canvas

    Rub the back of the adult or baby template with a pencil and trace the image on the painted canvas.

  • 2 Add paint to canvas

    Using two colors of paint, squeeze random lines of paint on the canvas (4-5 lines).

  • 3 Spread paint across canvas

    Using a piece of cardboard, squeegee the paint across the canvas.

  • 4 Blot excess paint

    Blot excess paint from the canvas as this will allow the paint to dry quickly. The birds should now be visible on the canvas. Allow to dry.

  • 5 Paint the birds

    Paint the birds.

  • 6 Outline birds

    Once dry, outline using the paint pen.
