IMG_20170131_093902For Chinese New Year we took the theme of cockerels (roosters) and made a cockerel from a paper plate.

You will need:

  • Paper plates
  • Red and yellow paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencils

In advance prepare paper shapes for beaks and feet from yellow paper, wings from white paper and wattles (the flappy bit on the cockerel’s neck) from red. Our wings were printed with the Chinese characters for cockerel (at least, that’s what I believe it says – please correct me if I’m wrong!)

Draw round the child’s hand on red paper and cut out the shape to use as the cockerel’s comb on top of its head. The children should glue the comb, wattle, beak, feet and wings to the plate and add googly eyes. Then you’re all ready to start cock-a-doodling!
