I love Paper Plate Crafts.
They are easy for children of all ages.
We made a paper plate duck.
Here is how you do it....
Yellow Paper Plate (the dollar store has different colors for cheap)
***Other alternatives: use a white paper plate and have the child paint it the desired color
cut a large circle out of cardstock/construction paper of desired color
TWO pink circles
ONE orange triangle
TWO wiggly eyes
***Other alternative: cut TWO circles out of paper
FEATHERS (find these in any craft section!)
***other alternative: cut a feather shape out of paper
For my children, I prefer to let them follow their natural reaction of placement. I never tell them where something SHOULD go.
For my 2-year-old Mere, I put glue down for her after she tells me where she wants to put her shapes.
She hates being "sticky."
For my 3-year-old son, I let him do the whole project on his own.
The finished product!
You can have SEVERAL variations on this project!
