Paper Plate Birdies

If you missed it, You can check out to make this Coffee Filter Wreath here! 

Spring, Easter & Earth day all in the same month!! 

What better way to celebrate by making crafts, duh!

We are making birds today out of paper plates! Super easy, cheap and very fun to make. And you all know I'm all about cheap and fun! All of this stuff you can find in your house, or at your local dollar store!

What you'll need ;
  • paper plates
  • googly eyes
  • construction paper
  • tissue paper
  • poster paint & paint brushes
  • glue stick
  • stapler
  • news paper (to cover your work table)
First we just used the poster paint and painted our paper plates. 
We let those dry over night. So the next day we folded them in half and added the feathers (tissue paper) to the middle of the plate with the glue.
We then put the beak (made out of orange construction paper
and the googly eyes.
I cut a few thin pieces of construction paper, the long way, and he folded them in half to make the tail. He glued it on but then I stapled it after to guarantee them not falling off.  
He made two of these. they were so fun. and letting him put everything on himself is so good for his fine motor skills. There's been a lot of that going on around here ! 

Keep up with me & Let me know your here!
