These adorable bright colored paper plate birds were so fun to make! We are learning about Parts of a Bird as included in the Birds & Eggs theme from Experience Preschool. The daily topic was Parts of a Bird: Tail. See the bird’s pretty tail feathers?
Paper Plate Birds
The paper plate birds are very easy to make. They start out with a large paper plate folded in half and glued together.
Then each child colored their bird as desired with Kwik Stix. I love Kwik Stix paint sticks for this type of project because it dries fast and we can move on the next part of the craft.
We had a school ager here so she used the glue gun to add the goggly eyes to each bird. I find that holds them on better and we don’t have to wait so long for the glue to dry.
Make & Play Paper Plate Birds
The birds make a great spring wall display or the kids can play with them.
Try to make a nest for your bird or teach it how to fly!
