Peacock Popsicle Stick Puppet - finished puppetMy daughter loves peacocks, she admires their beautiful feathers. She asked if we could make a toy peacock. Of course, we can make a peacock puppet with simple everyday supplies - assorted construction paper, wiggly eyes, pipe cleaner, scissors, a Popsicle stick, glue, and tape.
