This is an easy and fun love bird craft made from a paper plate. It’s a nice craft to make for Valentine’s day. This is a fun project to do as a last-minute gift for Valentine’s Day! It’s super for a homemade gift or decoration in your home.

To make a paper plate bird, cut the paper plate in half and cover it with glue. Cut small pieces of pink crepe paper and put them on the top of the paper plate. Use your yellow paper to cut out a beak and two Y shapes for feet. Stick the pieces together to make a bird. Put on googly eyes and use your pipe cleaners to add red hearts as wings!

Tearing up the crepe paper is a good exercise for your child’s fine motor skills and pencil grip.

It is also a lot of fun, and many kids enjoy getting messy while making their creations.

You can also turn your bird over and write your own message inside.
