Aren’t Robin’s just the sweetest little birds? We get quite a lot of them in our garden, they’re so confident too, often landing right next to us. We had so much fun making this paper plate Robin, my little guy loved the fact that he got to paint, cut out and use his favourite craft material (feathers!) all in one go. Even if our kitchen did look like someone had ripped open a feather pillow afterwards!
You will need
Red and brown paint
Eye stickers OR white paper and black marker
First take out your paper plate and cut out your bird shape, you can make two birds from one paper plate by cutting it through the centre.
Now it’s time to start turning your bird into a robin! Take your red paint and paint on a red semi-circle belly, then fill the rest of the plate with brown paint for the back. Put your bird aside to dry.
Next your bird will need a beak and an eye. Cut out a triangle for the beak and glue it in place on the back of your paper plate. Now to stick on the eye, we used eye stickers but if you don’t have these you can just cut out a white paper circle and draw on the details using your black marker.
Glue a feather across your Robin’s body to make the wing. Then take 4 or 5 feathers, group them together and stick them down on the back of your paper plate at the rear point of the Robin to make his tail. You might need to wait a minute for the glue to dry slightly.
From your yellow Paper cut out two rounded trident shapes to make the feet. Glue them down on the back of your paper plate and your Paper plate Robin is finished and ready to display! he looks awesome!

Earlier on we made some adorable kawaii bunny cards to celebrate Easter. I absolutely loved them so my son and I decided to adapt them to make this cute kawaii bunny craft to frame and hang in his sister’s bedroom (which we are in the process of decorating). They look adorable and the fact that her big brother helped make them makes them all the more cute! why not make some to decorate with or gift?
You will need:
To start you will need to take your white card and cut out your bunny shape. The easiest way to make your bunny is to draw an egg shape for the face, then add on two elongated ears. Don’t worry about messy lines as you can use this as the back of your bunny! (Once my scanner is up and running I will upload a template to make this step even easier – watch this space!)
Once you have cut out your bunny face shape, mount it on to your chosen colour backing paper/card. Then cut out and stick down two coloured ovals to make the inner ears.
Now to make your eyes. The eyes shown above are the easiest to make. To make the big cute open one, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and then another slightly smaller white circle to make the light spots. To make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips and glue them into a triangular shape as above.
Glue down your eyes and then from your black paper, cut out a number 3 shape to make the mouth.
Cut out two pink ovals to make the rosy cheeks and then optionally cut out an hourglass shape and a circle to make a bow. Glue down your pieces and your super cute kawaii bunny craft is finished! Don’t they look adorable?
