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
