Make a swan craft from a paper plate and white paper.
First fold the paper plate in half. Then cut hand prints out of white paper. Cut a long isosceles triangle from the white paper and fold it in half, then fold the tip of the triangle down to make a head.
Staple the hand prints to the back side of the paper plate to make a tail. Glue on a triangle beak in orange and googly eyes if you like.
Use this craft when learning about swans. You can also use it when reading a book or tale about swans. Check out these titles:
