Paper Plate Pelicans

Say that five times fast.

Go ahead. Try. It's kinda fun.

We made some Paper Plate Pelicans! I designed the Paper Plate Pelican about seven months ago and stuck it to my fridge. I finally got inspired to use these for teaching and because the #getcreativewith crew over on Instagram is having a paper plate challenge! And naturally, after the Under Sea party , the one pelican on my fridge looked lonely.

These are easy, fun and only require one 9 inch plate per pelican! We used watercolors to create a fluid design. I just thought that would look neat on the pelicans but you could use acrylics, Kwix Sticks, pastels...the list goes on!
