Paper Plate Giraffe Craft
Kids love painting paper plates! This easy craft only requires 3 paint colors. We used a sponge brush to make our circles, but for a fun sensory experience, invite kids to use their fingertips. You could give kids a pattern to trace for the horns and ears, but the giraffes look super cute when kids make their ears and horns all different. For added fun, glue the paper plate giraffe to a wooden paint stirrer to make a puppet!
To make this craft you will need
- white paper plate (6)
- yellow, brown, and pink paint
- paint brush
- large wiggly eyes
- white permanent marker
After gathering supplies, paint 3 paper plates yellow and 2 paper plates pink. Allow the paint to dry completely.
When the yellow paint is dry, dab brown circles around the plate. We varied the sizes, as my son reminded me that every giraffe’s spots are unique.
Glue 2 large wiggly eyes to the middle of the yellow plate. Set the giraffe’s head aside.
Cut ears for the giraffe with the remaining paper plates. Glue the pink paper plate on top of the yellow plates. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Cut horns and a snout for the giraffe from the scraps of the yellow paper plate.
Glue the horns and snout to the giraffe, then use the marker to draw a nose and mouth on the giraffe.
When all the glue is dry, your giraffe is done! Isn’t it cute? The perfect craft for animal lovers.
