Printed Peacocks

Kindergarten - Marshmallows - Finger painting - Peacocks
What could be better?

I show the little ones pictures of Peacocks.
We use the "letter C" with our hand (minus the thumb) and place the side of our hand in blue paint. This is the body of our Peacock.

We used BIG marshmallows and stamped them in green paint to make the outer color of the eye spot.

We used little marshmallows and stamped them in turquoise paint to make the inner color of the eye spot.
(you can reverse these colors)

Dry.

Give the little ones a felt-tip pen and make a beak, eye, legs (for body) and lines for feathers.

We read this fantastic story and they get a little marshmallow to eat...
(for not eating their stamping tool from earlier)
