Peacock Art

A few weeks back we went to the zoo and whenever we are there Holly enjoys the roaming peacocks in all the open spaces and the parking areas. After our last visit the peacocks have stayed on her mind. She has asked me a lot of questions about them, we have done a little research and read a book on peacocks at the library. The other day she asked to do a peacock art project. Ironically I had just stumbled upon an excellent blog that an elementary art teacher writes and had found a great peacock art project. I am very excited to try several other projects from her site down the road, as is Holly!

So, yesterday afternoon we brought up the site together and Holly worked through the steps of the project on her own. The peacock art project turned out amazing!!! She had a lot of fun doing it too.
