A while back, I bought a stack of burlap canvases. They having been sitting there collecting dust for several months now. Last night after dinner, I wanted to try one out. I painted a peacock, while Mai watched.
“What you making, Mama?”
“I want to make a peacock too!”
Egg Carton Peacock Craft
What you will need:
An egg carton
Cut the egg carton & separate each individual egg carton section. Paint the inside of the sections & around the outside sides in green. After painting each section, sprinkle glitter on the inside before the paint dries. Mai was so excited to add the glitter that she would not put it down even to paint the egg carton.
While Mai painted the cartons, I cut the body of the peacock out on construction paper. Add a beak & use paint to add details.
Glue the body down to a piece of construction paper & then glue the egg carton pieces in place.
