Determine Wing Span

To make the bird wings, you first need to figure out the wing span. To do so, have your child stand with their arms spread out. Measure the distance from one fingertip to the other side. This will be your “arm span.” Then measure the distance in between their shoulders; this will be the “shoulder span.” To give you an idea of size, my child is 4 years old, she has a 42” wing span and 9 1/2” shoulder span.
