Hooray for Paper Plates and fun Paper Plate Crafts for Kids… I love our inexpenisve and versatile paper plates are. And as a craft material relatively environmentally friendly too.
They make a great Preschool Craft with lots of wonderful topics and seasons to explore.
If you are a regular reader of Red Ted Art, you will have spotted some Paper Plate crafty explosion recently.. we have been making Paper Plate Spring Nests and have been doing some Paper Plate weaving, as well as making little Easter Baskets/ “handbags” (though these are ostentatiously for Easter, they actually work really well as a handbag party activity or as a favours basket at any other time of year).
In fact, we have a whole section dedicated to Paper Plate Easter Crafts!! I think it is because we inherited a stash of paper plates and thought it was about time to create some paper plate crafts!
As per usual, I got together with some other crafty people and we created another Paper Plate video for you (scroll to the bottom of the post), discussing our favourite paper plate crafts and showing them all to you…. and then add links to full projects and other ideas too!
