Have you ever seen a quail family walking in a straight line? It's adorable! We made this Quail Crown that would be a fun addition to a quail unit study or just because.

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cardstock
  • Stapler

Create it!

Step 1: Cut a length of cardboard and staple it together to form a crown. Set aside until the last step.

Step 2: From cardboard, cut a shape that is roughly a half circle with a circle on top of it for the bird.

Step 3: Paint all but the top half circle of the bird and allow it to dry.

Step 4: Paint some dots to the bird body and a detail line to outline the unpainted portion of the bird's head.

Step 5: Cut additional pieces from cardstock for the bird's face - a leaf shape, two eyes, a plume, and a beak.

Step 6: Glue the plume to the quail's head.

Step 7: Glue the eyes and beak to the leaf shape to create the quail's face.

Step 8: Glue the face to the quail's head.

Step 9: Glue the quail to the band made in Step 1.

Such a fun bird to learn about and we like that it wears a little cap of its own - complete with plume!
