My little girl loves going to see flamingos when we visit the zoo. They are her favorite bird; I think she loves their bright pink color. 

There are around 6 different species of Flamingo around the world. They are different shades of pink and they differ in height. Surprisingly they can live until they are 30 years old. 

This is an easy craft with only a few different materials required; most of which will already be in your home. 

My paper plate flamingo craft procedure will help you make this pair of flamingos which you can move up and down in the water using the attached popsicle stick. It is suitable for kids as young as 5 with Mum’s help of course.

Will you give your pair of flamingos a name? I have seen lots of great suggestions online but I personally like the names Candy Floss (as it is also pink) and Crimson. 

You can also use these as puppets for story telling without the paper plate if you like.
