Peacock craft for preschoolers

Peacock Craft 

Start the peacock handprint art by tracing the child’s hand on the construction paper. You can cut this one out and use it as a template for the other handprints, or you can draw each one individually, but you need at least 4 handprints cut out. 

Once you have the cut out, spread them apart so that the fingers are not overlapping and start to look like a fan of some sort. Or the peacocks feathers.  When you have them in the place that you’d like, glue the palms together.

We cut out a small triangle for the beak and then drew the eyes on with glitter glue. My daughter insisted that the peacock have eyelashes. I explained that the quintessential beautiful peacocks are male, she insisted. It’s her craft, so we gave the handprint bird some eyelashes.

You could easily decorate the feathers of this peacock handprint art more by adding more glitter glue polka dots or stripes on the feathers, but we didn’t do that this time.
