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
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 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.
