Cock-A-Doodle-Do! {A Rooster Craft Freebie}

Slide1One of the first things we created to go with our farm scene was a rooster. These guys were sooooo cute! I love how each one took on their own personality! 

We read a few rooster books like:

NewImageKip is a charming story from Australian author Christina Booth. From the time he hatches, Kip knows he is going to be something special………….he has an almighty crow!! Unfortunately the people in the neighbourhood don't appreciate Kip's loud crow and his owner{Mrs Be a} is forced to send him away. Without Kips crow, the neighbourhood is quiet…………..too quiet………………..will the neighbours miss Kip after all?

The other book we read was "Bob" by Tracey Campbell Pearson. We LOVED this story! Bob doesn't really know how to crow like a rooster should. All the other animals on the farm are fed up and decide to teach him how to do it! One night when a fox lurks about, Bob decides it's time for action…………what comes out though is a crow sure to scare away a pack of foxes……. VERY cute story!!

Here's a close up of our little creation…….

First we painted the rooster black and brown. We then added white dots by using the end of a pencil. When it was dry, we cut him out, folded two strips of yellow paper {fan style} for the legs and glued them on. We then stuck on the feet, beak {which you can't see very well but it's a folded square} eye, comb and wattle. Last but not least, we taped some coloured feather to his back.

If you'd like to make one of your own, you can get the pattern for free by clicking the picture above. I'd love a comment if you find it useful!

Have a great weekend everyone. I'll be back next week with a cute cow craft freebie that you won't want to miss!
