Paper Plate Parrot Craft

Our playroom wall has been rather bare since home-schooling finished and I don’t have opportunities to do as many crafts as I was doing before.  Well, thankfully, we have had a few days of wet weather after school which gave BB and I the opportunity to do some paper plate parrot crafts.

Make sure you follow my paper plate board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own paper plate parrot crafts you will need:

  • Paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Tape/glue

I had wanted to do my own parrot, but she is an African Grey, and as the name suggests she is grey with a lovely red trail.  As lovely as she is, she isn’t the most colourful parrot out there.  Instead, I went for the Scarlett Macaw.  BB wanted to look at different types of parrots, so I showed him some, and he decided on doing a yellow ringtail parrot after seeing a video of one named Twinkie.

To make the paper plate parrot, start by cutting the plate in half.  One half will be the body and the other half will be the head.  Paint them as you wish.

When the paint has dried add some ribbon to the bottom of the body to make the tail.  We only had one piece of yellow ribbon for BB’s one.

Attach the head piece to the body.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
