How to make Paper Plate Unicorns with Preschool
If you have white paper plates, you can of course make white Paper Plate Unicorns.. or you can make these gorgeous pastel versions!
Prepare your Unicorn “parts”
Paint the paper plates pastel color. They also look great left white! Allow the paint to dry completely.
Print out the unicorn template.
Cut the template out and trace onto cardstock.
Cut the horn out and glue on the front of the paper plate. Refer to the photos.
Assembling the Paper Plate Unicorn Parts
Cut out the ears. Glue the inner ear onto the ear using a glue stick.
Glue the ears onto both sides of the horn. You’ll want to glue the ears behind the plate, right on the edge.
Cut a strip of marabou feathers. Add a dab of hot glue in front of one ear and then glue the feathers in place.
Tuck the feathers behind the horn.
Glue the end of the feathers in front of the other ear.
Glue paper flowers in front of the horn.
Use a pencil to draw eyes onto the unicorn. When you are satisfied with how they look, trace over the eyes with a black marker or black paint pen. (you could also use large googly eyes)
Cut the circles from the cardstock and glue onto the unicorn. Refer to the photo.
