With the Kids

Paper Plate Pigeon Toady Kid Craft

Hi friends! We’re partnering with the new animated movie STORKS which hits theaters this Friday. In celebration of the release, we made a Paper Plate Pigeon Toady kid craft. Not only is it kid-friendly, but it’s also a sweet way to get the whole flock together to get excited for this release!


From the studio that delivered The LEGO Movie. STORKS is in theaters this Friday, September 23. 

Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.


Have children display their finished piece as is or have them use it for some fun pretend play afterwards!

So let’s flap our feathers together, gather our craft supplies, and make a one-of-a-kind piece with our children today! Happy creating and my movie watching, my friends!

Paper Plate Pigeon Toady Kid Craft



  • Large Paper Plate
  • Green Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • optional – glitter glue, rhinestones, feathers etc.



First cut your green colored tissue paper into small squares {let the kids practice their cutting skills.}

Take your large paper plate and put a good amount of glue all over it. Have children place the tissue paper on top of the glue, until the paper plate is completely covered.

While they are working on that, grab the cardstock and scissors. Cut out the pigeon’s circular eyes, triangular beak and iconic wavy hair.

To finish off the Paper Plate Pigeon Toady kid craft – simply staple/glue the cardstock pieces to the paper plate in their designated spots and set aside to let it dry completely. Then display/play with proudly!


Take this craft idea one step beyond by changing it up a bit and making a stork friend to join your newly made pigeon! All you need to do is change the colored tissue paper to white and make different embellishments from the cardstock. Since you already have everything out – it’s the perfect excuse to really make a crafty afternoon out of it!!
