Make a Paper Plate Llama

My eldest daughter LOVES llamas.

When asked what her favourite animal would be, llamas would be her first favourite and pugs her second.

We made these paper plate llamas while crafting at home and they came out pretty cute.

materials to make paper plate llama


1. Use a lead pencil to draw the head and neck of your llama. We drew this freehand – but the paddle pop sticks can be used as a stencil if needed.

2. Cut your paper plate in half. Cut out legs and a tail from the white cardboard and sticky tape these to the paper plate half to create your llama.
