It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a craft done with my daughter, Leah. With the holidays, she was making so many projects at school she wasn’t too interested.
Leah is also on an independent project tour. This is where she likes to “do her own project.” It usually involves glue, paint, and cutting. Yes, all together. Let’s just say, these projects are very…abstract.
But, recently we did a paper plate project. I loved it because we have paper plates and the only other things we needed were crayons and scissors. First, check out our inspiration…
We followed the same instructions. I drew a spiral on the plates.
We colored the spiral (on both sides). This is critical! You don’t want one whole white side on the spiral – do you?? Then Leah cut on the spiral line.
Finally, we hung them up!
Yippee! This is a great craft idea. Leah liked it. She paid attention the whole time. There were no parts that only I could do. Easy, peasy!
Also, I think these would make great party decorations!
And, while I was hanging them up, Leah was working on another “independent project.” Pictured below is a close up of the bear cave she made and had to have attached to the spiral.
This is a super simple craft.
I hope you’ll try it!
