Paper Plate Santa
A while back we made these cute paper plate Santa that my girls had fun making while I was busy in the kitchen I like crafts that they can do on their own or with a little help. It lets them feel like big girls and gives them the confidence to try to do harder crafts on their own before asking for my help.
Materials we used:
- paper plates
- Watercolor paints
- Cotton balls
- Red construction paper
- Cut a portion of the top of the plate
- Paint the inside smaller circle of the paper plate to be a face
- Use the cotton balls and make a beard and mustache
- Cut the red construction paper into a Santa’s hat and glue that on the cut off top portion of the paper plate, add a cotton ball the tip of the hat
Now you have a simple paper plate Santa that your child got to make on their own.
