Sharing is caring!

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this, but I absolutely love crows. I’m not sure why because well, yes, they can be loud and annoying. But I find them to be amazingly smart and curious creatures to watch.

Every Fall, I take out my stuffed crows so that they can take their places of honor throughout the house.

This year, I wanted to try something different. Since I recently started drinking coffee again, we’ve been buying K-Cups because it’s easier for us. We have accumulated quite a few and I wanted to find a way to repurpose them. One of the ideas that I was toying with was making a k-cup crow.

Find another use for the empty K-Cups and try out this easy K-Cup crow craft. Or penguin, whichever you may think he is.

How to Make a K-Cup Crow (or Penguin)

On second glance, I thought he almost looked like a penguin… so I suppose you could call it a K-Cup penguin as well.

Whatever the case may be, this little guy was fun to make and easy to do. Depending on the age of your child, they can do these by themselves. With Squeaker only being a toddler, I did most of the assembly by myself.

Here’s your supply list (to make one bird)

  • empty K-Cup
  • two googly eyes
  • one square of orange or yellow construction paper for the beak
  • one square of black construction paper for wings
  • one craft stick (cut in half) for the legs
  • mini glue gun or regular glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Feathers (optional – we did not use them)

How to Assemble the K-Cup Bird

First, from the black piece of construction paper, cut it in half to make two triangles. Fold the edge of one triangle, and cut to make the wings smaller. Once you have the desired size, glue the wing onto the K-Cup and repeat with the other side.

Next, cut one corner from the orange or yellow construction paper for the nose. Find a spot and glue that piece on.

Next, put two dots of glue on the K-Cup where you’d like the eyes to be.

And finally, put a dot of glue on each of the halves of the craft stick. I went about halfway and then put the bird on. You can move the bird as needed until the glue has completely dried.

I think that they turned out pretty cute. And they also passed the Squeaker test. I put one in front of her and she correctly identified it as a bird. Then, when she wanted to play with it the glue held up nicely.

I think we’ll do more K-Cup crafts in the future. I had a lot of fun with this one and hopefully Squeaker can help me out more in the future!

So there you have our K-Cup crow. Have you made crafts with K-Cups?

This K-Cup crow is so easy to make! Honestly the longest part was waiting for the glue gun to heat up. A super fun and easy craft idea.
