Paper plate dolphin craft
How sweet is this dolphin craft? The kids have been extra busy this week making more paper plate animals to decorate their bedroom wall. Today we wanted to do something simple and easy that would suit my youngest and this little paper plate dolphin was just perfect!
Here’s what we used
Blue paint and paintbrush
How to make a paper plate dolphin
Take your paper plate and coat it in the blue paint before popping it aside to dry.
Cut the paper plate in half and pop one half aside. Take the other half and cut it in half to make two quarter slices. Cut one of the quarters in half and dispose of one of the sections so that you have the same shapes left as shown in the photo.
Glue the quarter triangle down on to the corner of the half paper plate to make the tail. Then take the small triangle and glue it on the back of the half paper plate to make the fin.
Add an eye and a mouth and the super cute paper plate dolphin is finished! So sweet and simple – great for preschoolers!
