Paper Plate Chickens

Step One: fold a paper plate in half, stuff with newspaper to create a nice plump shape and tape over the edges to seal in the newspaper.

Step Two: tape on a cardboard triangle at one end for the beak and feather shaped cardboard at the other end.

Step Three: papier mache over the entire chicken and leave to dry. Just one generous layer of papier mache was enough for Molly’s chickens above.

Step Four: time for the kids to get busy with the paint.
