Fold the plate with the side you would eat from on the outside


Paint the paper plate all over the side you would eat from. My toddler used a mix of orange and yellow.

There's no need to be conventional, you can paint your chicken or bird any colour you want

Cut your paper into several shapes for your child to stick on as the features. A long triangle for the beak and some more for the head. A couple of circles for eyes and some feather shapes.

You can use up scraps of paper


Glue on the beak, eye and feathers. It doesn't matter if they are a bit skewed as this adds to the charm and it's the sticking on that's fun.

Cut the tissue paper into thin strips and gather together. Let your child scrunch them together at one end and then fasten just inside the fold of the plate as the tail.

You can now sit your chicken up and rock him back and forth.
