Paper Plate Monkey – Fun Paper Plate Crafts for Kids

We’ve made a whole bunch of paper plate animal crafts already as paper plates are so handy to craft with!

Paper Plate Monkey Craft for Kids

We really wanted to make something unique here and I think we’ve made it – this project has quite a few crafting techniques so you can even make it a group project for smaller kids!

Paper Plate Monkey Craft. A fun paper plate craft for kids of all ages - this makes a wonderful group craft!

For this craft you need;

  • two paper plates
  • brown paper
  • beige paper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • black marker

Making of Paper Plate Monkey

Color the paper plates brown. Leave one as is and trim the other one, cutting the edge and leaving the ears (you can also glue the ears on). Glue the paper plates together.

Have the kids trace their hands on the brown paper and cut the handprints. Cut the monkey face shape and draw the facial expression. Let’s make a silly monkey!

Cut 4 strips of brown paper for the legs and arms and one swirly one for the tail. Glue all things together and you’re done!

You can naturally add a banana!
