What’s inside: An easy step-by-step photo tutorial to make this adorable Pom-Pom Bald Eagle Craft with kids.
The 4th of July is one of my absolute favorite holidays — I love making red, white, and blue recipes, crafts, party decor, you name it!
I am absolutely enamored with these cute-as-pie fluffy Pom-Pom Bald Eagles! This is such an easy activity to do with the kids over summer break and get ready to celebrate the USA!
You could also incorporate this simple art project into a nature study about eagles or United States history.
Pom-Pom Bald Eagle Craft for Kids
Affiliate links provided for your convenience in re-creating this craft; disclosure policy available here.
- Craft foam sheets (brown, yellow & orange)
- Large brown pom-poms
- Large white pom-poms (slightly smaller than the brown pom poms if possible)
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Google eyes
Begin by folding the orange craft foam sheet in half. Cut out feet for your eagle on the bend. They don’t have to be perfect, but you are welcome to use the photo below as a guideline.
Using the hot glue gun, glue the large brown pom pom onto your orange foam feet.
Note: Assist your kids with hot glue steps, and be sure to let them know that glue can sometimes seep through the pom-poms.
Glue the white pom pom onto the top of your brown pom pom.
Cut a small triangle from your yellow craft foam and glue to the center of the white pom pom. This will be the beak.
Glue two google eyes above the yellow triangle beak.
Cut two eagle wings from brown craft foam. Glue wings onto both sides of your brown pom pom. Your eagle is finished!
Tip: This craft is perfect to do with a group, since one sheet of each color craft foam can make a lot of eagles.
