What would a good pirate be without his sidekick – a parrot!? You can actually make your parrot one of two ways. As a paper plate craft, or as a parrot mask which would be a neat idea for role play while your kids are acting out their pirate scenes! You’ll need a paper plate, a red marker or paint, scissors, glue, and some construction paper! Use the above photos to create your own parrot. Want to add a little fun into your parrot craft? Try using googly eyes or cut holes for eyes and use a mask!
