7 Reasons to Try Peacock Coloring Pages + Crafts
Keep reading to learn why coloring these sheets can be enjoyable and some fun crafts you and your family can make using them!
1. Fun Indoor Activity
Often it can be difficult for parents to find indoor activities for their kids to enjoy, especially when they’re forced to play inside due to the weather.
However, if your kids have an affinity for drawing, painting, and other arts and crafts, they may get a kick out of coloring in our peacock coloring sheets!
2. Helps Develop an Interest in Animals and Other Countries
Visual aids are essential to helping a person develop interests, especially for young kids.
If your child loves animals, then getting them to color-in pictures of such an interesting and colorful bird like a peacock may help them further develop their love for different wildlife.
This may also pique your child’s interest in different countries and habitats as they learn more about the different types of birds and animals, like peacocks, that exist worldwide!
3. A Way to Express Creativity
Most kids enjoy engaging in creative activities, whether they enjoy drawing, writing stories, using clay, or coloring pictures.
So, by downloading and printing off these Peacock coloring sheets for your kids, you can help them find another way to express their creativity through color association.
4. Helps Kids With Color Association
From a very young age, children learn how to associate certain colors with objects (e.g., the sun is yellow, apples are red, etc.).
Therefore, by providing coloring pages for your kids of different objects, places, animals, and wildlife, such as peacocks, they can advance their knowledge on this subject.
For instance, peacock feathers have varying shades of blue, green, brown, and yellow.
If you teach your child to color a picture of a peacock using these colors, they will be better able to identify this bird in real life.
5. A Bonding Activity For The Family
Playing with your kids is essential to forming a secure bond, and engaging in family crafts and projects is a great way to do something that the whole family can enjoy!
For example, if you have a child who is fond of animals and enjoys coloring, try downloading my peacock-themed coloring sheets and filling them in together.
Not only will it be a fun way to spend time, but it’s also a solitary activity that gives you more of an opportunity to talk to your kids about school, friends, and things that may be on their minds.
6. A Way to Learn More About Peacocks
If your child enjoys using my peacock-themed coloring pages, they might be interested to learn more about this fascinating bird. We’ve compiled a list of facts your kids may enjoy.
(These facts are also great for teachers to incorporate into class assignments and art projects, which we’ll discuss further below).
What Is a Peacock?
Peacocks (also referred to as peafowls) are medium-sized birds from the pheasant family. Peacocks are the male bird, while peahens are the female bird.
Where Do Peacocks Live?
Peacocks are native to Asia, but can also be found in Africa and Australia.
Peacocks prefer to live in forests, warm regions, farmlands, bushlands, and rainforests, where they can easily access plants and trees to eat.
What Do Peacocks Eat?
Peacocks are omnivores, meaning they eat plants and meat. They eat many foods, including grains, plants, fruits, insects, flowers, bread, and other scraps found in their habitat.
What Color Are Peacocks?
Peacocks are brown, but their color changes depending on the reflection of light. This is why peacock feathers are so colorful.
When light strikes from varying angles, every section of a peacock’s feathers will change their color.
7. Fun Projects to do With Peacock Coloring Pages
Coloring pages can be used for all sorts of activities that kids and adults alike will enjoy.
Below I’ve compiled a list of crafts you can use these peacock coloring pages for that are great as a family project or class assignment.
1. Decorate Gifts
If your child wants to give a gift to someone, they can use their leftover peacock coloring pages to decorate gift bags or boxes!
Cut the silhouette of the picture out from the coloring sheet, and paste it onto a bag or box (tip: try matching the gift bag/box to the main color of your child’s coloring page).
This will add a special, personal touch from your kids that the gift recipient is sure to love.
2. Create a Themed Storyboard (For Classrooms)
Download a variety of my peacock coloring pages, and have your students select their favorite picture.
Take a poster board or piece of large craft paper and fold it in half to make divided sections.
After the pages are colored in, paste the peacock picture on one side of the fold, and either leave the other side blank or paste it on a sheet of line-ruled paper.
Have the kids write their own story based on what’s shown in the peacock picture, which they can fill in on the side with line-ruled paper.
This is a great project for an art or science class. As a tip – have the kids include at least one real fact about peacocks in their story to make it more educational.
