Paper plates are versatile craft materials. You can paint, cut, glue, decorate and turn them into just about anything you want. Besides, they are cheap. Show me a mom who doesn’t like an inexpensive craft that takes very little prep work. That’s why I put together 15 paper plate spring crafts for kids to try this season.
Some of these crafts are so easy that toddlers and preschoolers will be able to pull it off on their own. Others may require mom’s help.
There are plenty of ideas for everyone, from sun, rainy cloud and umbrella to chick, bunny and sheep. Happy crafting!
