Valentine's Craft: Paper Plate Love Birds

Let your kiddo show the love with these easy-to-make Valentine birdies

Paper plates become the star in this easy Valentine's craft. 

⁃ 9" white paper plates
⁃ craft paint
⁃ paint brushes
⁃ foam paint pouncers (optional)
⁃ painter's tape (optional)
⁃ love bird printables
⁃ craft glue
⁃ wiggle eyes

Print and cut out the love bird elements so they're ready to use.

Cut paper plates in half and flip over. Have kids paint the plate backs and printable heart shaped "tail feathers" in the color(s) of their choice. In addition to paint brushes, you can also set out fun extras like painter's tape and foam paint pouncers to help kids create interesting patterns on the plates.

Glue on the bird legs, wing, tail, beak, and wiggle eye.
