Paper Plate Monkey – Fun Paper Plate Crafts for Kids

It’s Monkey Business time! do one Craft monkey with paper plateIt’s fun and super silly!

We have made many paper plate animal crafts because paper plates are so convenient to make!


We really wanted to do something unique here and I think we did – this project has some crafting techniques so you can even make it a group project for the little ones!


For this job you need;

  • two paper plates
  • brown paper
  • toast paper
  • the glue
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • Black marker


Paint the paper plates brown. Leave one as is and trim off the other by clipping the edge and leaving the ears (you can also glue the ears). Glue the paper plates together.

Have the children trace their hands on the brown paper and cut out the handprints. Cut out the monkey’s 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 a spiral for the tail. Glue all things together and voila!

Of course you can add a banana!
