Paper Plate Birds

Paper Plate Birds


Cockatoo and Magpie Made from Paper Plates.001

When it comes to crafting with the kids, I have to say paper plates are one of my favourite resources. Paper plates are so versatile. We have created party hats, characters such as monsters and dinosaurs, and cute animal face masks. This time we tried something a little different. My youngest is very interested in Australian birds so we made a cockatoo and a magpie.

What you need:
4 paper plates
White paper
Bird template (download)
Yellow feathers
Googly eye
Black paint
Fine paintbrush
Grey pipe cleaner
Black pipe cleaner
Grey crayon
Brown crayon
Black felt tip pen

Watch the video below to see how we make the birds.
