We decided to create on of the animals from the story, the peacock. Logan loves to pick up paint samples from the hardware store. Every time we go there, we let him pick one out. It keeps him entertained through the rest of the store. But what to do with these extra paint chips?
Create a paint chip peacock.! Let your child glue on the "feathers". Create the body from blue construction paper.
This was such a fun craft this week because Logan was able to do it by himself with only verbal directions from mom. He's growing up! He even drew his own eyes on the peacock!
Now let's just hope this peacock stays quiet! I don't want to hear a screeching peacock!
