This paper plate giraffe was super fun to make! You could make one for a zoo theme unit or if you’re just learning about giraffes. You could also make the paper plate into a giraffe mask for the kids if you just punch out the eyes instead! It turned out so cute!
For this art project you will need a paper plate, yellow/brown paint, a black marker, yellow/white construction paper, scissors, glue, and a paint brush.
Have the kids paint the whole paper plate with yellow paint, covering every white spot!
After the yellow paint dries, have them paint brown spots all over with paint.
Take some yellow construction paper and cut out a nose, ears, eyes, etc.
Glue them on the paper plate and then you have an adorable giraffe craft!
We brought the giraffe outside to play on the playground! :)
