How fun are these adorable paper plate flamingos? We had so much fun making these!

It’s been a little while since our last post, The weather has just been so beautiful and we have been spending all of our time having fun outdoors and in the pool! However with the weather turning muggy and thundery today we’ve been back inside and back to crafting. At the moment we’re busy working on some fun animal crafts to decorate little man’s bedroom and these cute paper plate flamingos are a perfect addition!

Here’s what we used

  • Paper plate
  • Pink paint and paintbrush
  • Pink and black paper
  • Feathers
  • Googly eye
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make a paper plate flamingo

Take the paper plate, cut it in half and paint it using the Pink paint.  Put to one side to dry.

Cut out a round head shape with long neck and glue it onto the back of the paper plate.

Cut out two thin L shapes for the legs and glue them onto the back of the paper plate.

Add a Googly eye and a black triangle beak to the flamingo’s head and add some Feathers for the wing to finish it off!
