How I did this Project

Collect the materials:

  • Paper plate
  • Cotton balls
  • Black construction paper
  • Googly eye
  • Pink button
  • Glue stick
  • Piece of curling ribbon
  • Scissors

Steps for Making a Paper Plate Lamb

  1. Have children spread the glue stick on the back of the plate a small section at a time and apply cotton balls close together, including the edge of the plate.
  2. Once the entire plate is covered with cotton balls, cut an oval shape with ears for the face from the black construction paper and have them glue it onto the side of the plate.
  3. Have them glue on a googly eye and a pink button for the nose.
  4. Next they can cut out two black legs and glue them onto the bottom of the plate.
  5. For the finishing touch, they can glue on a spring-colored bow. Curling ribbon is the easiest to attach with a glue stick.
