Step 1: Paint a paper plate blue. Kids can use a paintbrush or a paint sponge. We usually prefer the paint sponge as it can be faster and more fun.  Some kids may go directly for their fingers and this is fine. My youngest likes getting messy.

Step 2: Once the paint has dried completely, you can go ahead and apply glue where the continents should be.

Step 3: Add buttons to the paper plate, one by one, and press firmly. Cover all the area where glue has been applied and let it dry.
