Fluffy panda face


Most people can't help but smile when they see a panda's face. Make this 3-D panda face, then hang it on your bedroom wall and wake up with a smile each day!


Materials: black tissue paper, white tissue paper, paper plate, glue, marker,  scissors, tape

What you need

  • Black tissue paper
  • White tissue paper
  • 1 large paper plate (10 inches across)
  • 1 small paper plate (6 inches across) OR a piece of cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Pencil or marker
Torn-up paper; paper plates


Cut or tear the black and white tissue paper into small pieces (about 2 inches by 2 inches). Crunch each piece of paper into a crumpled ball.

Cut the smaller paper plate in half. If you are using a piece of cardboard, cut two half circles from it—these will be the panda's ears. Tape the two half-circles onto the top of the large paper plate, where ears would be.

Placing the paper balls on the plate


Use the pencil or marker to draw two large circles where the eyes should be. Draw two smaller circles inside the large eye circles. Draw a triangle for a nose under the eyes. 

Put glue on the entire surface of one of the ears. Push pieces of crunched-up black paper onto the glue on the ear.

Panda face is revealed


Repeat steps to create the other ear. Glue a couple of pieces of crumpled white paper to the center eye circle. Glue black paper in the larger eye circles and the nose. Glue the remaining white paper onto the rest of the plate. You might want to spread glue over a small section, then press the tissue paper crumples onto it before moving onto another section.
