You will need:

Step 1: Cut your paper plates in half and paint
Cut your paper plate in half.
Paint the halves of the plates.
We chose red and pink paints but you can pick whatever colour you like.
Step 2: Jazz your birds up with patterns
Once your base coat of paint is dry then add patterns to make your birds look more funky.
We painted little hearts all over ours.
You could paint dots, zig zags or whatever you like.
Step 3: Cut the wings, beak and feet from card
Cut a small heart for your bird’s tail from card, a larger and thinner heart for the wing, a little yellow triangle for the beak and legs from yellow card too.
Find a googly eye for your bird.
Step 4: Glue the details in place
Glue on the tail, wing, eye, beak and feet to complete your paper plate love bird.
Why not make a whole flock of feathered friends in different colours?
