This small little bird about the size of a chicken has somehow managed to significantly grow in popularity in the recent years. I am talking about the kiwi bird, the flightless bird that has become a symbol and nickname for New Zealanders all over the world. These birds are unusual and have certain characteristics that are not very common, like being nocturnal, having nostrils at the end of their beaks, and having an extremely developed sense of smell that enables them to detect food. They are also quite strange because they lay the largest egg in relation to their body size of any bird species worldwide. They are also cute and fuzzy, which has led to many people wanting to have one as a pet.

While keeping kiwi birds as pets is not a great idea, there are other ways in which you can have one: making a pompom kiwi craft that you can take anywhere with you is a start! Not to mention how much fun will you have by making it. In order to make an adorable pompom kiwi, you will need an orange craft foam, such as sticky back foam. However, ordinary foam and glue works just as good. You will also need wiggle eyes and, naturally, glue. You should start by cutting two feet shape from the orange foam, which you should then stick to the pompom so they act as a base. Then, you need to glue a triangle of orange foam that will serve as the eyes. You also need to glue to wiggle eyes to the front of the pompom and there you go! Now you have your own kiwi toy.

If your children love the kiwi bird, not only can you make them a pompom craft, but you can also download and print kiwi posters that they can put in the room. With the Internet being at the tip of your fingers, finding such printables is very easy. Once you go online, you will come across kiwi posers, booklets, animal jigsaws, posters, writing paper, coloring pages, and even frames. Your children will be extremely happy with their brand new, customized school items. This will also give them the chance to learn more about the kiwi bird and maybe raise awareness among children regarding the importance of protecting this bird. They need to understand that the kiwi bird is endangered, so they cannot keep one as a pet. Instead, they can play with their pompom kiwi craft all they want!
