Flamingo Paper Plate Craft For Kids

One of my favourite birds is the Flamingo. Today on the blog I have a fantastic Flamingo bird paper plate craft which I made. This is a fantastic activity for kids both in the home and in the classroom. Paper plate crafts can be fun to make and are fantastic for encouraging creativity, imagination and helping little ones build fine motor skills. I have a list of supplies and instructions but you can change them up a little to make your craft unique and different.
