Paper Plate Crow

Paper Plate Crow

This cute fall crow is made from craft paint and paper plates. A fun fall craft for the kids! Scarecrows always get the spotlight, so don’t forget about the crows! This is easy enough for preschoolers, and toddlers can join the fun too with a little help.

Turn paper plate upside down and paint backside black; allow to dry. Use pattern to cut out two black wings, white eyes and an orange beak.


Use black marker to color in the eye pupils.

Use glue stick to attach the beak to the bottom of the eyes. Glue the eyes and beak to the paper plate. Tape the wings to the back of the paper plate. Use the scraps from the black paper to cut out eyelids, use the eye pattern as a guide. Glue to the tops of the eyes. Cut a tuft of hair from the black paper and glue to the top of the paper plate, attach on the backside.

Notes: If you like you can make a scarecrow hat from tan construction paper and attach to your crow’s head.

    I enjoy your blog so much Amanda…I do crafts with my grandchildren and we always can find something interesting to do on your site. You could use this technique to make angry birds as well!
