C Is for Chicken Paper Plate Craft

C Is for Chicken Paper Plate Craft

Paper plates are an inexpensive craft medium, especially for the littlest crafters. At a recent museum class for toddlers, my youngest daughter and I made some simple but adorable paper plates chickens. She loved helping me stick the pieces onto the paper plate. Use the craft with older kiddos in conjunction with a lesson on the letter C.
