Cuban Tody Bird Plates

Our school is having a parent night next week and a few of the classes will be performing. One of the teachers asked me if I could do something extra special for a class of second graders to show off for the performance. Since they are singing a song by Cuban singer Celia Cruz, we thought it would be appropriate to do something Cuban themed.

Meet the Cuban Tody Bird.

We used ceramic plates and Sharpies to draw the Tody bird and decorate the plates! Check out the results!
