You can make cute animals that stand up using paper plates. This is a great craft for a group of kids; you can provide the supplies and let them use their imaginations when creating their animal.  If you are looking for other kinds of animal crafts, try this rolled paper cat.



Supplies Needed to make a Paper Plate Animal:

  • Colored Paper Plates
  • Craft Foam Sheets
  • Glue (Low-temp glue gun if you want it to dry fast)
  • Scissors

Directions to make a Paper Plate Animal:


  • Fold the Paper Plate in Half with the colored side on the outside
  • After deciding which animal you want to make, cut out the ears, nose, mouth, and eyes from the Craft Foam sheets and glue on


Here are a couple more ideas:

  • Folded Paper Plate Alien, using pipe cleaners for the antennae:


  • Folded Paper Plate Frog, using a permanent marker to draw on the mouth:

    So cute!

    I’d love it if you shared this with the Fun Family Crafts audience.
    FFC is similar to Craftgawker but it only features kid friendly tutorials.

    Looking forward to seeing what fun crafts you submit!
