2- 9" paper plate
Black construction paper
2 large wiggle eyes
Black crayon or marker
White craft glue
Red construction paper
How to make it:
Using the pattern, cut two eyes, nose, two arms, two ears, and two feet from the black construction paper. Cut bow tie from red construction paper.
Cut off about a ½" from the outer rim of one of the paper plates to make the panda head. Glue the nose to the center of the plate and the two eyes above it. Glue ears to the back of the plate.
Glue wiggle eyes to the centers of the black paper eyes. Then draw on a mouth and eyebrows with a black crayon or marker.
Turn the other paper plate upside down. Glue both arms in place, shoulder to the back of the plate and paw to the front. Glue red bow tie to the center of the plate, about 2" below the outer edge.
Dip child's finger tip in white paint and dot toes onto feet. Let dry then glue feet to the bottom of the paper plate body.
Glue the head to the body.
To make this panda a girl, make the bow tie out of pink paper and glue to top of head.
If you would like the arms to be moveable, use paper fasteners to attach the shoulders to the paper plate instead of glue.
To add rosy cheeks, use pink crayon.
