Tp roll peacock craft for kids

If you have been to this blog before you will know that my son and i love animals. Our favourite days out are spent going to animal sanctuaries. Birds are a species that are easily overlooked, they’re not as tall as a giraffe or as cool as a lion but they are certainly beautiful! My niece and nephew recently gifted my son with a peacock feather and this inspired my son to make his own peacock pal. After a bit of playing around we eventually came up with this little cutie – doesn’t he look fab!

Here’s what we used.

  • Tp Roll
  • Blue paint and paintbrush
  • Coloured paper
  • Feathers
  • Paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Eye stickers (optional)

How to make our TP roll peacock.

Coat your Tp roll in your peacock blue paint and then put it aside to dry.

Whilst your peacock’s body is drying you can work on the tail. Take your paper plate and cut it in half. Keep one half and put the other aside.

Once your peacock body is dry you will need to make his face. Give him two little eyes and a folded triangle beak.

Cut out two little elongated feet and fold a tab at the end of each one. Use these tabs to stick your feet inside the bottom of your TP roll, then fold your feet outwards.

Cover the back of your TP roll in glue and then align it centrally and inline with the bottom of your paper plate before sticking it down. Your TP roll peacock is finished! Doesn’t he look awesome?
