Paper Plate Bird Craft

Create an entire flock of unique birds using paper plates and a few other supplies.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

  • Paper Plate
  • Markers, Crayons, or Paint
  • Feathers
  • Scrap Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Color or paint the back side of the paper plate. Fold the paper plate in half, colored side out, to form the bird's body. Glue a couple of feathers to the sides of the plate to make the bird's wings and glue another feather to one end of the plate to make the tail. Once you have the body of the bird done, use some scrap paper to make a beak, eyes, and any other details you want your bird to have.
