Parrot Rocking Bird Paper Plate Craft

Here's a simple bird paper plate craft that rocks back and forth. This one is a green parrot, but you could adapt it to another color or bird.

  • 1 large paper plate
  • 1 small paper plate or card stock
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • green paint, paintbrushes
  • markers
  • green and white paper
  • 2 google eyes
  • exacto knife
  • glue

  2. Paint the bottom of a paper plate green and allow to dry. Add details of feathers with green markers.
  3. Gently fold the plate in half. From the line measure about 1.5 inches to each side. Draw a line on each side and fold the paper plate down. This will create the shape so it rocks back and forth.
  4. Draw and cut out the bird's head like the one shown from a small paper plate or card stock.
  5. Use paint or markers to color both sides of the head; orange for the beak and orange, red or brown for the feathers on top of the head. Cut slits for the feathers on top.
  6. Glue google eyes on either side of the head.
  7. Use an exacto knife(adults only) to cut a slit on the middle line of the plate and stick in the head.
  8. Trace and cut out wings and tail feathers and glue on.
  9. Rock your bird back and forth.
