Baby made: handprint peacocks

Cards, Painting, Paper crafts  |  April 29th 2011  |  0 Comment
It’s a sure sign that spring is on its’ way when you start to see the return of robins (and other birds!) around here. We’ve been spotting lots of birds around here lately, so I decided to make some bird themed crafts with the kids.
This craft was actually inspired by a craft that we saw on Mister Maker. It looked easy enough to make, so Claire and I gathered our supplies and sat down to try to make the craft. You know what’s not so easy? Trying to get a three year old to do four blue handprints in a fan shape!
However, we finally got one that turned out (and 4 that didn’t!). After we had the handprints done, I painted Claire’s thumb and part of her palm under her thumb to make the body of the peacock. Then I just let Claire go to town painting dots all over the peacock’s tail. Add some googly eyes, a beak, and then draw on his feet.
Join me here again tomorrow while I show off a few more bird crafts that we’ve made. You won’t want to miss these ones!
