Today, we’ll be continue our paper plate alphabet zoo series with B is for Beaver. To check out yesterday’s A is for Alpaca, click on over to this post.
To begin, I found the beaver pattern at DLTK’s Crafts for Kids, but you could just as easily cut out the shapes without a pattern.
I cut the hair from a few different colors of paper in order to personalize the beavers a little bit.
Want to make your own? Let’s get started!
What You Need:
- Brown Construction Paper
- Black Construction Paper
- White Construction Paper
- Brown Paint and Brushes
- Paper Plate
- Googly Eyes
- Glue and Stapler
What You Do:
To begin, pour some brown paint onto a paper plate and let the kids paint the whole plate brown.
After the plate is painted and is dry, pass out the beaver face features. If the kids are older, they can glue on their own eyes, nose, teeth, and hair. Staple the ears in place.
