Cluck O' Clock





Book & Craft this week was making hens to look like the ones in this book:


I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but the hens look like they're painted. So I thought that would be a perfect craft to go along with the book!


The boys painted with finger paints onto several pieces of white paper. After they dried, I cut them into hen-shapes. I cut out red feathers for the head, and orange beaks from construction paper and we glued them on. Then we drew on the eyes with a black marker. Cock-a-Doodle-Doo!


This would also be a fun craft during Easter and springtime!


*P.S. The best finger paints around are by Crayola. They are the perfect consistency. Not too runny and not too thick. And best of all they are completely washable--and so easy to wipe off tables, fingers, and wash out of clothes. I HIGHLY recommend them for painting crafts with kids. 
And there is a great deal on Amazon right now to get a nice set of 12 different colors. In big bottles that you can use for a LONG time! Check it out!
