Soaring Eagle

Soaring Eagle craft

Display our national bird with pride. Create the breathtaking wing span of the American Bald Eagle with Crayola™ Color Sticks Colored Pencils.

  • 1.

    To create an expandable wing span, use white paper from Crayola Giant Floor Pad to draw a pair of large wings. Draw several additional pairs of wings in decreasing lengths. Cut out the wings with scissors.

  • 2.

    Color the wings using Color Sticks Colored Pencils. Lay Color Sticks flat to cover the larger areas. Add details to the wings with Crayola Markers.

  • 3.

    Fold a piece of white construction paper in half and draw the profile of an eagle’s head. Cut out the eagle’s head on the folded paper to create two identical sides. Add details to the head with Crayola Markers and Color Sticks Colored Pencils. Run a bead of Crayola School Glue along the inside edge of the head and glue the two sides of the head together with the details facing out. Let the head air-dry completely and then insert some crumpled pieces of recycled newspaper to fill out the eagle’s head.

  • 4.

    Fill a brown lunch bag with crumpled pieces of recycled newspaper.

  • 5.

    Assemble the wings in two sets with the largest wing in the back graduating forward to the smallest wing. Use a hole punch to make a hole near the top of each set of wings. Overlap the two sets of wings at the punched hole.

  • 6.

    Insert a brass paper fastener on the inside of the filled brown lunch bag near the opening so the prongs stick outside the bag. Insert the prongs into the punched hole on the two sets of wings and secure to hold.

  • 7.

    Twist the top of the bag closed and insert in the neck area of the eagle’s head and glue in place. Set aside to air-dry thoroughly.

  • 8.

    Fold another piece of white construction paper in half and draw an eagle’s leg. Cut out the eagle’s leg on the folded paper to create two identical legs. Add details to the legs with Markers and Color Sticks Colored Pencils. Wrap the legs around the barre

  • 9.

    Glue the two legs in place at the bottom of the bag.

  • 10.

    Punch a hole in the top of the eagle’s head and insert a piece of fishing line and knot the ends to create a loop for hanging.
