Little Birdies for peace

Two birds disputed about a kernel,
when a third swooped down and carried it off.

Kiddos were fighting over the same toy so I made them those birdies to illustrate this African Proverb. They loved it and Peace was back!

Some facts about birds: There are 8,600 species of birds in the world today. They are found everywhere and play a vital role in the balance of nature.
They eat insects, pests and small animals. Birds have between 1,000 and 25,000 feathers.

This little birdie made of yellow hemp twine makes a great, natural and safe baby toy and can be found in both my Hyenacart and Etsy shops.
