Clump-o-Lump Paper Plates
Spend a day with the little ones, turning leftover party plates into a few of your favorite Clump-o-Lump characters. These party plates work great as summer puppet show masks, bedroom decor, or even as a way to save your favorite snacks from falling on the floor! This post is for all the Bird-o fans and how to make a Bird-o plate.
What you’ll need:
• 2 baby blue paper plates
• 1 yellow paper plate
• 1/2 black paper plate
• 1/2 paper plate of any color
1. The first step is to make Bird-o’s beak. Cut the edges off of the yellow plate, to make it easier to cut and draw on.
2. With a pencil, draw a beak shape on the white side of the yellow plate. Cut it out and glue it to the blue plate.
3. On the white side of the black plate, draw two one-inch diameter circles. These will be Bird-o’s eyes. Cut each of these circles out and paste them onto of the blue plates.
4. To make Bird-o’s feather, cut out the curved white side of any color plate. A two-and-a-half inch strip should do. Glue the feather down.
5. Using the other blue plate, draw her two wings. We drew the bottom of each wing to have a bit of a wave, but feel free to make the wings any way you would like. On each wing, be sure to keep an inch-thick of the curved part of the plate intact, since this will attach to her main body (the plate that has her beak and other features glued to it). Cut each wing out and glue the raised, curved part of the wing to the back of the body on each side.
