|I spotted this adorable paper plate seagull the other day in one of our publications. Isn’t it cute? (The directions for making it are below.) This project reminded me that paper plates can be a popular school supply. I actually had the urge to run right out and look for a paper plate sale!
How do you use paper plates in your classroom? Do you stock up during summer sales?
To make the seagull shown, paint the back of a paper plate dark gray. Cut the plate, as shown, to make the seagull’s head, body, and wings. On the front of the plate, draw two eyes on the head; then glue construction paper feet and a beak in place. Finally, fold the wings forward.
