How to make a popsicle stick bald eagle!
Gather all supplies. To create the eagle, line up four jumbo craft sticks on your work surface. Using scissors, trim additional jumbo craft sticks to the width of the eagle and attach them with a glue gun and glue sticks.
TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Basecoat the front and sides of the jumbo craft sticks with brown acrylic craft paint. Let dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Download and print the eagle patterns and cut them out with scissors.
Using a pencil, trace the handprint onto brown craft foam twice. Trace the beak once and the talons twice onto yellow craft foam. Cut out all patterns with scissors.
This is a great opportunity to trace your child’s hand to create a keepsake craft.
Trace the eagle’s head onto white craft foam with a pencil, and cut it out with scissors. You can also use construction paper, colored cardstock, or craft felt for this project.
Attach two wiggle eyes to the eagle’s head with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue the yellow craft foam beak just under the eyes.
Attach the two brown craft foam hand cutouts to the back right and left-hand sides of the eagle with a glue gun and glue sticks to create the wings.
Flip the eagle back over and attach the talons to the bottom with a glue gun and glue sticks.
To finish, accent the eagle’s beak with two black dots created with a permanent black marker.
