Paper Plate Toucan Craft with my Preschooler

I always love arts and crafts with my kid. We enjoy our time together in such activities when we don’t play outside or when we don’t read books together. Last week was preschool holiday for our kid. On his last day to school term, teacher gave a pack of crafty material to each child asking to make a bird.

The material pack included paper plates, bottle caps and papers to use for making a bird. It sounded interesting for us.

However we had a busy week last few days and it was the last minute that I came up with this idea of creating a toucan using paper plates. I found this idea while searching for paper plate crafts images on Google and loved the idea.(Actually my kid selected the toucan from the different paper plate bird crafts I showed to him)

So, here is how we made this paper plate bird.

Materials:

I asked my kid to colour the plates. He used his own imaginations and coloured the plates.

Finally we used glue to stick the paper plates together.

A Balloon drum

This is a noisy idea. But my kid loves to have a balloon drum whenever there is a burst balloon skin. To make this drum, you don’t need many skills. Just wrap the balloon skin over a cup or an empty tin using a rubber band. Your kid will have a new toy to enjoy at least for few hours!

Recycling is a great cause to teach the kids from their younger age. By having a recycling bin at home, they will learn the value of recycling and treasure the earth. We made a recycling bin using an empty cardboard box. It was a lovely idea and my kid knows that we can recycle certain items.
