Originally planning to add holstein cow 'spots' with construction paper, we stumbled upon soccer-themed paper plates left over from a birthday party and used them instead!
What you need:
- Two paper plates (one small, one larger)
- Construction paper in pink and black
- Pipe cleaner for tail
- Black marker or crayon
Flip the smaller paper plate over, and attach to the bottom of the larger plate with glue or stapler.
Cut out pink ears and mouth and glue onto the cow's face. If you are using a plain white paper plate for the 'body', cut out black construction paper in rounded shapes and glue on to make the jersey prints.
Twist pipe cleaner to make a twirly tail, and staple onto the back side of the paper plate.
Complete the cow by adding eyes, mouth and nose! Paper plates make a great puppet if you add a popsicle stick in behind.
