Step 1: Build the Foundation

  • Allow the glue to dry thoroughly

*You may want to prepare several triangle frames at once so that they are ready for other projects. Just keep them in your craft bag.

Step 2: Paint It

  • Place the triangle frame on the newspaper
  • Pinch the pompom with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
  • Squeeze a little white paint onto the newspaper and paint the triangle frame
  • Set aside and allow the paint to dry

If your kiddo is a little one and just learning cutting skills, starting with this simple shape is great. To make it a little easier, go over the thin line with a bold black or red marker line and encourage them to have their scissors “eat” the line, cutting right through it instead of to the side. This is a new concept for many youngsters, as they had been told to that point that they should color inside the lines, not on them.

Step 3: Put It Together

  • Use the printable template to cut out the triangle out of white construction paper
  • Once the paint has dried, attach it to the back of the popsicle stick using a glue stick

Step 4: Use the Rooster Craft Template

Step 5: Finalize Your Farm Animal Craft

  • Glue the pieces (wattler, comb and beak) into place using the glue stick
  • Place the googly eye
  • Last, add some detail, such as eyebrow, smile and shadows, using your markers

Your rooster kids craft does not need to look like mine, and it shouldn’t! Make it your own. If you want your rooster to have a purple comb, you do you. Really! There are not limits but your imagination! And then please share your finished projects. Send pics and stories to!
