Hand Winged Bald Eagle

Eagle005

The Bald Eagle is our National Bird.  With all the red, white, and blue crafts and décor this week a Bald Eagle sounded like the perfect symbol of freedom to add to our Independence Week.

This fun project turned out to be my little guy’s favorite of all time.  HE LOVES HIS EAGLE.

What you’ll need to create your own Bald Eagle:
* TP Roll
(or cut paper towel roll)
* White Cardstock or Construction Paper
Eagle002* Black Marker
* Brown Paint
* White Paint
* Paint Brushes
* Yellow Cardstock or Construction Paper
* Googly Eyes
* Scissors
* Glue

Begin by drawing a line on your TP roll at about the Eagle0031/3 mark; then trace your little one’s hands on the white paper. 

Hand off the brown paint, a paint brush and the white paper with drawn hands off to your little one to paint while you draw out & cut a couple feet and a beak on the yellow paper. 

Next have your little one paint the white top on the TP Roll, then mark the feet and beak.  Once the brown hand wings have dried, cut them out and glue Eagle004them to the dried TP roll. 

Finally glue on the eyes, beak, and feet.

And there you have it ~ a rare Hand Winged Bald Eagle.

Happy Crafting!
