You must have some old clothes / sheets etc. - use fabric.

Its not too hard to plaster straight on, provided you don't put too much on in the first coat, and you have sufficient support to the wire.

Plaster is going to weigh a ton though !

It needs to go in a toddlers room, and has to last a few years. Plastering was the first thing I thought of. Any suggestions on other materials?

You should be able to put strips of paper mache over the checken wire. If you need to add plaster, you could add that after the paper mache layer.
