A fun quick activity for little ones learning to use scissors


  • 1 Paper plate
  • 1 Black pen
  • 1 Pair of scissors
  • 1 Stanly knife


  1. Draw the body of your bird on the centre of your plate with the tail being part of the rim.
  2. Cut out a section of the plate edge for the wings, then cut out your bird body
  3. Using the stanly knife cut a slot along the body to slot the wings


You might be able to find a template to print if you are not a confident drawer (we are all competent, it's all about confidence!)
