On a trip to a local zoo, they had the peacocks out and walking around so that you could get very close to them. Our whole family was pulled in by the beautiful feathers on the birds and the funny way they strutted around the zoo. When we got home, we decided to make a peacock craft so we could remember the day. Using our template and a little sparkly paint and sequins, your kids can create this fun bird craft too. This is a great craft for preschoolers as it involves paint, glue skills (see step #3), and fine motor skills (sequins are tiny!).

What you'll need:

  • Peacock template
  • Construction paper (blue, green, orange)
  • Two googly eyes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Shimmer paint (we used "dot painters" or bingo daubers)
  • Sequins
How to make your Peacock Craft:
  1. Print our peacock template and cut the pieces out. Trace the pieces onto construction paper. We used blue and green for the feathers (3 green, 3 blue)
  2. Lay the feather pieces out on some newspaper and let your child paint them with the dot paint. We went with a shimmering variety to make the project sparkle a bit. If you don't have this type of paint on hand, trace your feathers onto white paper and have your child paint the feathers green and blue.
  3. When the feathers are dry, glue them to a piece of white construction paper so that the colors alternate. *Note*: to make this easier for our daughter to do by herself, I laid the feathers out on the white paper ahead of time and lightly traced them where they should go. When it was time to glue, she was able to line them up and put them in the correct spot. This is a great skill to work on with the preschool set.
  4. Have your child glue on the eyes, beak and feet.
  5. Spread some glue in a small circle towards the top of each feather. Have your child place sequins on the glue circle to complete your peacock craft.
