Paper Plate Sun Craft
Paper plates are so fun to craft with! A stack of white paper plates can become just about anything with a little paint and imagination.
To Make This Craft You Will Need
- white paper plates
- yellow paint
- black craft foam
- white school glue
- black permanent marker
- red colored pencil
After gathering supplies, invite kids to paint their paper plate yellow. While the paint is drying, kids can sketch sunglasses on the black craft foam.
When the paint is dry, cut small triangles all around the outside of the paper plate. Invite kids to glue the sunglasses to the middle of the sun.
Last use a black permanent marker to draw eyebrows, a smile, and a tongue on the sun. Kids can color the tongue in red with colored pencils. Colored pencils over paint is a really beautiful effect!
Don’t you just love this craft? It looks adorable hanging on the fridge or wall!
