Paper Plate Cow Craft for Kids
Little ones can practice their cutting skills if you let them cut out the cow’s spots. The great thing is that they don’t have to be perfect so even your most particular crafter will have fun with this one!
What You’ll Need
• construction paper or cardstock
• ribbon (optional)
What You’ll Do
To begin, draw some simple designs for the cow’s ears, nostrils, and spots. I like to do this with a white crayon on black paper since the white stands out.
Then, draw shapes for the nose and inner ears on pink paper.
Cut out all of these shapes.
Glue the pink inner ear to the black outer ear. Then, glue the nostrils to the upper portion of the pink circle/nose.
Glue the ears to the backside of the upper portion of the plate and the nose to the front of the bottom portion of the plate.
Now comes the fun part! Have your preschoolers glue the spots on the paper plate randomly. This is fun, because it makes every cow mask unique.
Once the spots are all on, you can add the eyes. You can cut the eyes out of paper, or you can use googly eyes.
To make this mask even more “mask like”, you can cut out two eye holes. Then, your child can actually see through it when they wear it.
Now, glue a small ribbon bow to the front of one ear where it meets the plate. This step is totally optional, but it’s one my daughter would have done for sure.
Your cow mask is finished! Kids will have a blast using this simple cow craft to retell their favorite cow-themed stories or adding it to their pretend play area.
