Hi %recipient.firstname%,


Did you eat a lot of eggs at Easter? The reason eggs are associated with the spring and Easter, is that eggs symbolize the renewal of nature after the winter. Birds lay eggs, a new generation is born and nature wakes up again.

Here is a funny bird that you can make with paper bowls. For this project, I haven't tried to be too realistic: I represented a sitting bird! For the colours, just follow your inspiration; make an imaginary bird if you like.


The document that accompanies this video includes patterns for the wings and for different beak shapes.



Before they can lay their eggs, some birds must first make a long return journey from the warmer regions they migrated to in the fall. Canada geese generally come back around this time. Last year, some were seen on February 21, but that is an exception.

I represented a flying Canada goose using oval paper plates. This is a beautiful project to illustrate a lesson on bird migrations, for example. Hang it from the ceiling in your classroom or in a child's bedroom!

Frequently Asked Questions : What are credits ?

There are many free documents on the Animaplates website, and there are also "premium" documents that are available at a small cost.

If you have a Basic or Pro Membership, you can pay for the premium documents with credits.  Basic Membership includes 20 credits, and Pro Membership includes 40 credits. When you purchase a membership and you use credits, you get a better deal than if you were to buy the documents individually.

Every time you renew your Basic or Pro Membership, you get 20 or 40 credits that are added to your balance of the previous year. As long as you renew your membership every year, you never loose any credits.

If you exhaust all your credits, you can buy more.

You will find our Frequently Asked Questions in the Help ("?") menu.
