For more fun, make more than one. Cut out the birds after coloring. Create a "Palm Forest" for the birds. Use a large paper or bulletin board. On other paper, trace the outline of your hand. Cut out the palms. Draw branches on the large paper. Arrange your palms on the paper or bulletin board. Tape or staple birds to palm branches.
