Hand and Footprint Peacock

My girls just love paint!

Here is another craft idea using hand and footprints. A peacock!

For this craft you will need:

  • White poster paper
  • Blue and Green Paint
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue
  • Orange paint or paper for beak

First paint one of  your childs hands blue. Get them to make hand prints across the poster paper for the peacocks feathers. Do the same with some green paint.

Next add a blue footprint in the center of the feathers pointing downward for the peacock body.

Allow the paint to dry completely and then glue on two googly eyes and a cut piece of orange paper for the beak. You could also paint on a beak.

I think he is pretty darn cute! I love these hand and foot print crafts because they are also great keepsakes. These kids grow up so fast, it is nice to have these memories.
