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.
Anyway,before reading further,check our latest craft: weather wheel for preschoolers.
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.
Pair of scissors
How we made this Toucan paper plate craft:
Simply we placed the paper plates as in below picture. Cut plates into halves and shapes that make a toucan.
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.
Our toucan is live now! My kid loved it and he was happy to take it with him to preschool on the first day of new preschool term!
