Paper Plate Crafts A Easy Unicorn Project

Today as part of my paper plate crafts series I am sharing this sweet and easy to make Unicorn paper plate idea. This easy kids craft is simple to make and comes with a free unicorn template to help make the unicorn project easy.

I really love easy crafts and I’m slowly building a collection of paper plate craft ideas here on The Inspiration Edit.

Why Make a Paper Plate Unicorn?

At the moment Unicorns are everywhere and I think the reason people love Unicorns so much is because they allow us to use our imagination and express our creativity.

At school I learnt the importance of using the creative side of our brain. It can really help with creative development and building the imagination. I think this is the perfect craft for doing just that!

Teaching young children to use their imagination is so important and helps with the following:

  • Imagination enhances problem solving skills
  • Imagination helps preserve the memory
  • Imagination helps with social interaction
  • Imagination helps foster curiosity
  • Imagination helps develop self confidence

Let’s Make This Fantastic Unicorn Project

Paint the paper plates pastel colour. They also look great left white! Allow the paint to dry completely.

Unicorn Paper Plate Craft

Print out the unicorn templateCut the template out and trace onto cardstock.

Cut the horn out and glue on the front of the paper plate as shown in photos.

Cut out the Unicorn ears. Glue the inner ear onto the ear using a glue stick.

Glue the ears onto both sides of the Unicorn horn. You’ll want to glue the ears behind the plate, right on the edge.

Cut a strip of marabou feathers.

Add a dab of hot glue in front of one ear and then glue the feathers in place.

Tuck the feathers behind the horn. Glue the end of the feathers in front of the other ear.

Glue paper flowers in front of the Unicorn horn.

Use a pencil to draw eyes onto the unicorn.

When you are satisfied with how they look, trace over the eyes with a black marker or black paint pen.

You could also use large googly eyes – we love googly eyes!

Cut two circles from the cardstock and glue onto the unicorn paper plate.

Your unicorn paper plate is finished!

I hope you enjoy this paper plate craft!

If you want to get the kids using their imaginations a little more, why not cut holes out for eyes and turn these paper plate crafts into a Unicorn mask with scissors and elastic?

That’s a great way to extend imaginary play even further by having the children pretend to be Unicorns and getting them to role play! Just Imagine it! (no pun intended)
