While I originally made this adorable little guy for New Year’s, it also makes a really fun party favor, or even a make and take, for a birthday party! If you would like to do the project as a make and take, I would suggest having the plates painted first so the kids don’t have to do that step and get messy.
Paper Plate Party Animal
- 1 paper plate
- Yellow and light blue paint
- 2 large pink pom-poms or any color
- Scrap of black felt
- Party blower
- Paint the backside of the paper plate light blue and allow to dry. Paint the top side of the plate yellow and allow to dry.
- Cut circles from black felt and glue to the pink pom-poms. Fold the plate in half but do not crease. Glue pom-pom eyes to the top of the blue side of the paper plate. Cut a small hole in the center of the plate and insert the party blower. Parents can secure the blower with a small amount of hot glue, however tape can also be used
I originally created this project for Kix Cereal
