      paper plate crafts… chickens

      Simple and sweet character rich chickens – humble paper plate crafts for kids. I love how the belly of the chooks acts as a blank canvas for the kids to explore colour and pattern, paint a picture or even recreate a master :)

      Molly set out, very decidedly, on creating a boy chook and an ‘elegant’ girl chook (hint…. it’s all about the eyelashes :) My only assistance was in opening the little tester pots of paint for her, and washing-up afterwards of course!!




      How to Make Paper Plate Chickens for Your Kids Too

      Step One: fold a paper plate in half, stuff with newspaper to create a nice plump shape and tape over the edges to seal in the newspaper.

      Step Two: tape on a cardboard triangle at one end for the beak and feather shaped cardboard at the other end.

      Step Three: papier mache over the entire chicken and leave to dry. Just one generous layer of papier mache was enough for Molly’s chickens above.

      Step Four: time for the kids to get busy with the paint xx
