We made an adorable paper plate pigeon craft that even rocks using our free template because “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” by Mo Williems is the latest book in our house that gets read every day. The kid’s can recite it by heart and love all the exclamation points that make the book fun and exciting to read, not to mention the silly pigeon with lots of emotion!!! Mo Williems has other pigeon books that we still need to put on our book shelf like, The Duckling Gets a Cookie, The Pigeon Needs a Bath, The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog, and more.

Pigeon Paper Plate Craft

Pin me please! 🙂
Pigeon Template (available for download at the end of this post)
Light blue, yellow, and black paint
Paint brush 
Paper plate
Black pen
Glass gem & tape (optional)
If you don’t want the pigeon to rock, you can use half a paper plate per pigeon. 
1.  Paint the paper plate, the large circle (head), and long rectangle (neck) on the printable light blue. Paint the beak yellow and use a finger to make a dot inside the smaller circle for the eye. Leave the small rectangle white. Set aside to dry.
2.  Cut out the pieces from the printable. Fold the paper plate in half and glue the pieces together onto the paper plate. 
3.  Use the black pen to draw a wing on the paper plate. Tape the glass gem or other small object to the inside of the paper plate to make it balanced when it sits. Also, if your paper plate doesn’t stay in a V shape, make a tape loop and place it at the smallest point of the V to hold the two sides close together. 
Pin me please! 🙂
