The great thing about this paper plate cow craft is that it’s super simple to make. Pretty much all you need is a paper plate and some coloured paper.
(As if that wasn’t easy enough, I’ve also uploaded the hand drawn cow craft template that we used too. It is simple enough to draw your own shapes but you might find it useful. Be warned though, it is only a rough sketched template and nothing fancy!)
Fancy a quick Cow Joke before we get started?

Enough joking around, grab your paper plates and let’s get ready for some moo-vellous farm-themed fun!
Turn a Plain Paper Plate Into a Fun Cow!
How To Make a Paper Plate Cow
1 – Start by tracing the cow’s features onto coloured paper or cardstock. You’ll need, black patches and outer eyes, a pink nose and two white ears. You can sketch these by hand easily enough or use the cow template we used. It’s only a rough hand drawn sketch I’m afraid, but you might find it useful.
2 – Next glue the cow’s facial features onto the front of the paper plate.
3 – Make the inner eyes by gluing on some googly eyes.
4 – Colour half of each white ear black.
5 – Then glue the ears onto the back of the cow’s head.
6 – Finally finish off your paper plate cow by drawing on any other facial features you’d like. We added nostrils, a smile and some small eyebrows.
7 – You could also add some paper horns or a bell around it’s neck too if you fancy!
Now your lovely paper plate cow is ready to get mooing! Why not craft up a whole herd?
