Although Diva the Bird of Paradise is made with a paper plate and a toilet roll, she is packed full of some serious personality, attitude and colour and she definitely knows it! It’s a fun kids craft that embraces creativity, recycling, imaginary play and could be made in conjunction with a book activity too…. for added context and engagement
This is a quick and easy craft that allows children to explore principles of basic construction as well as the typical crafting elements of gluing, scissor skills, crayons and sticking etc. The fact that Diva’s body is made out of toilet roll is a great way to speak about recycling and how everyday products can be reused to create different (and brilliant) things!
