What You’ll Need:

  • light brown, dark brown, red and orange foam sheets

r is for rooster craft

How to Make the ‘r’ rooster:

  1. Cut  lowercase letter r from the dark brown foam sheet. We used a piece that was 2” x 2” in size.
  2. Cut tail feathers for the rooster from the remaining dark brown and light brown foam. Glue/tape the tail feathers onto the letter.
  3. Cut a beak from the orange foam sheet and glue/tape it onto the front of the r.
  4. Cut a comb for the rooster from the red foam. Glue/tape the comb onto the top for the rooster.
  5. Add a wiggly eye to finish your rooster!
