Lesson Plan Ideas
NOTE: Print out pattern as follows:
- 74% for 4″ x 8″ Mini Bags
- 100% for 6″ x 11″ Bags
- 120% for 7″ x 14″ Bags
Cut out the Pieces: Following the pattern (Peacock Puppet_pattern.pdf -See NOTE above) cut the pieces from Tru-Ray® Construction Paper – Cool Assorted Package.
Assemble your Peacock: The flat bottom of the bag is the peacock’s head. Lay the bag down in front of you with the opening of the bag at the bottom and the bottom flap on top.
Glue the peacock body down making sure it goes up under the flap.
Next, position and glue the top of the beak to hang over the bag flap. Then, align the bottom of the beak below the top beak, under the flap, and glue (Note: be careful not to glue the bag flap down so the mouth can open freely.)
Glue the remaining peacock pieces to the bag and add Short Marabou & Plume Feathers to the top of the bag for the peacock’s crown.
Lastly, to give your peacock feathers support, glue a few Natural Wood Craft Sticks to the back for stability. Let dry.
