Toilet Tube Big Bird and Friends

Take a journey high up into the sky or down low onto Sesame Street to find the perfect bird for you to craft. This toilet paper rolls craft allows for lots of creativity as far as which bird you want to make and how it will look. If you're a Sesame Street resident, craft Big Bird and his colorful friends. You may not have met his friends yet, but that means that you get to name them and give them personalities; how fun! To make Toilet Tube Big Bird and Friends look even more like Big Bird, cut out little orange and pink striped legs. If you want to simply make a spring bird, then fly off into your imagination and see what you can come up with!
