Easy paper plate bird craft
These birds are fun to make. You can use them as decorations, or to play with.
To make them you will need::
a paper plate
glue (glue sticks are easy to use)
tissue paper, coloured paper, and/or fabric scraps
black pen or googly eyes
How to Make Homemade Birds
Tear or cut some pieces of your tissue paper, card and/or fabric.
Fold a paper plate in half to create your bird’s body.
Cover sections of the paper plate with glue and stick on your tissue paper, card and/or fabric. You can make your bird look like a real bird, or one from your imagination.
Cut two circles of white card and draw on eyes – or stick on googly eyes.
Add feathers to make a fancy tail and wings.
If you’d like to use your birds to make a mobile, use a piece of string, threaded though the bird’s back, to hang it up.
