Step 2: Cut the body parts of cow out
From the template, cut all the body parts out neatly. Younger kids may not be able to do it on their own. You can assist them, if necessary.
Step 3: Make the paper plate base for the cow’s body
Take a paper plate and cut it into two halves.
Cut the inner flat portion of the paper plate out and discard the rim.
Now, take the spots of the cow we cut earlier and paste them onto the paper plate base, forming a random pattern.
When you paste the spots, make sure you paste them on the backside of the paper plate base, which is the part bulging outwards.
Now, take the four legs and paste them near the horizontal edge of the paper plate base.
In the same way, paste the tail and head of the cow to the paper plate base.
And the paper plate cow is ready!
