Handprint Peacock

This peacock made with handprints and a footprint is a perfect craft to do with your preschooler.  Young children love tracing and older children can cut out the handprints and footprints themselves.

You will need:

Assorted purple and green paper

Dark blue paper

A small piece of yellow paper

A pencil

Scissors

Glue

Googly eyes

 Step 1.

Trace and cut out three green handprints and three purple handprints.  Cut a footprint out of the dark blue paper.

Step 2.

Arrange the handprints into a fan shape and glue them together.  Glue the footprint in front.

 Step 3.

Finish the peacock by giving eyes, a beak, and feet.

Did you know that a peacock is a male peafowl?  A female peafowl is called a peahen.  The female peafowls are smaller than the males and are plainly colored.  Only the males have showy purple and green feathers, which they display to impress the females.
