Pea-cock making event at Maimonides Medical Center

This project required many steps. First, they cut the paper plates in half, to use as the back of the peacock, and painted them. Then they cut the card board into a duck like shape to use as the front of the peacock. Next, they painted this part and gave the peacock a beak and eyes. They then glued the front of the peacock to its back. Lastly, they glued on colorful feathers to the peacock's back. And Voila! You have beautiful peacocks! The children were so excited to learn how to make these! This was a wonderful opportunity for the children to relieve their stress and express themselves, a great form of art therapy. At A Free Bird Organization, we are so happy to be able to empower children in this way. We are also always looking for AWESOME NEW ARTISTS to attend our weekly event, and help uplift young children with cancer through the arts. If you are an artist that would like to dedicate one afternoon to uplifting children with cancer and create more exposure for yourself, please email us at: programs@afreebird.org!
