It has been a tough couple of weeks in our house. Our daughter was sick last week & this week I have been battling one heck of a head cold. That means that my daughter & I were house bound yesterday. She wanted to play hide & seek, but mommy didn’t quite have the energy for it. Instead we spent the whole day doing my two favorite things, crafting and napping.
Mai wanted to make a bird, so we stuck with a whole bird theme & paper plates.
Paper Plate Bird
Mai wanted an orange bird, so we made two orange birds for her. I gave her paint & let her work her magic. After the paint dried, we used construction paper to make the wings, eyes & beak.
Paper Plate Tropical Bird
“Mommy look, a tropical bird!”
Paper Plate Owl
I have a great love for owls, so mommy made one special for herself. I cut out a bunch of feather shapes in yellow, black & brown.
Layer the feathers around the plate & glue in place.
Add wings on both sides.
Cut out & place the beak.
Cut out two different sized large circles for the eyes.
Add googly eyes & top feathers
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
So cute and hoping though you are feeling better. I started with a head cold, as well at the end of this week and still not myself today. But just hoping that spring and less illness will find us soon once and for all soon.
