How To Make Paper Plate Llama Craft For Kids
1 – Cut off the sides of a paper plate (about 1.5 inches).
2 – Use your Sharpie pens to colour the middle of the cut off pieces to make the llama’s ears.
3 – Trim a little off the top of each ear to make it slightly rounded.
4 – Draw your llama’s face onto the middle section of paper plate. We used a heart shape for the nose. It’s fun to experiment with different expressions and eye shapes.
5 – Give your llama craft texture by snipping a wavy line along the sides and across the top of the llama’s head to look like wool.
6 – Glue the ears onto the back of the paper plate head.
7 – Sticky tape a piece of coloured yarn onto the back of the llama’s neck. Wrap the yarn around the neck a few times and sticky tape the other end onto the back of the neck too.
8 – Repeat the yarn wapping with a some different colours and then glue on some mini pom poms too.
9 – If you want to make a llama Valentine cut some paper hearts and glue them onto the llama’s forehead.
10 – Cute a larger paper heart and write your Llama pun Valentine message on it.
- I really llike you!
- Llets be friends!
- I think you’re woolly cooll!
- Llama be your Valentine!
11 – Tuck your Valentine card into your llama’s neck yarn.
