Paper plate crafts are always great for toddlers, and these cute paper plate birds make an excellent Spring toddler craft. We painted these ones using paint rollers, but you can paint them using brushes if you prefer. You can find feathers at most dollar stores or craft stores.

What you need: 

    • Paper plate
    • Poster Paint (we used red, purple and yellow, but any colors will work)
    • Paint Roller
    • Feathers
    • Colored Paper to cut into strips
    • Glue
    • Googly Eyes
    • Yellow paper for the beak

What to do: 

1. Paint the Paper plate using the roller. We used red, yellow and purple and they mixed really well with the roller, but any colors will work fine.

2. Fold the Paper Plate in half (once it is dry).

6. Glue on the eyes and beak.
