We had so much fun with our last interactive bee craft, that we wanted to keep the interactive crafts going. This paper plate hopping bunny craft is perfect for Easter or just for the spring. Draw your own bunny or use one of our free printable bunnies. One was created by me and the other by my 8 year old daughter, who was so excited about this craft that she wanted to make her own.
We are already a few days into spring and we couldn’t be happier. We have been spending a lot of time outdoors and can’t wait to see all of our springtime blooms. When discussing with my little one what would be a good craft to make for the spring, she suggested this. We do a lot of interactive crafts and she thought it would be cute to make a bumble bee flying from flower to flower. She was right. We think this paper plate bumble bee craft came out absolutely adorable. Thanks little miss for the great idea.
What is cuter than a waddling little penguin? I can’t think of too many things. With the cold weather moving in, we are starting to look towards our winter crafts and we just love this interactive little guy. This adorable paper plate waddling penguin will surely delight your little ones, while they craft and then play. A free printable penguin template is available below.
It is getting to be that time of year again. The ghosts and goblins are ready to come out and play. And this adorable paper plate flying ghost is more eager than the rest.

This week I am lucky enough to be directing the arts and crafts portion of our town’s summer camp. I have a group of fun and creative campers that are a joy to work with. While playing around with different materials and ideas today we came up with this flying fairy in a jar craft. I was so excited at how adorable they came out that I had to share it with all of you.
We love crafts in motion. You get to create something wonderful and then have the added bonus of getting to play with it after. This driving car craft is a new favorite of ours. Watch your car drive through the city or a country road. Wherever you want to be, your little car and your imagination can take you there. Just draw or paint your landscape and make it happen.
This craft is an ode to our pet betta fish Luna. It was not her birthday or anything, but my daughter insisted over weekend that we needed to make something to celebrate our Luna. So here it is!! This cute and interactive paper plate swimming fish craft is dedicated to her. A free printable template is available for your convenience.
Crafts in motion are so much fun. First, you get to enjoy making the craft and then you get the added bonus of playing with it after. We have made crafts that bobble, some that pop-up and even ones that play winter sports. Spring is just a couple of weeks away and it is the perfect time to fly a kite.
We live in New England. It is not uncommon to be playing in the snow one day and then to be outside in shorts the next. The weather can be crazy and unpredictable. As much as we sometimes like to complain about the ever-changing weather, I would not change it for a thing. There is something to love about each season. My favorite is watching the trees. I love the gorgeous colors that the fall brings and the haunting beauty of a bare tree getting ready for the winter. Right now, we are excited to see the buds on the trees preparing to sprout for the spring. We love each and every season. Because of this, four season crafts are a favorite of ours. Here is a fun four season craft with a twist (literally).
A couple of days ago we made a paper plate ice skating craft. It was a huge hit with our audience, but an even bigger hit with my little girl. She couldn’t get enough of it. She loved making the skater move around the “ice”(paper plate). Almost as soon as we finished making it, she said “I know what we can do next. We need to make a skiing craft.” She was so excited about this that she could not wait, so together we brainstormed and came up with this adorable snowman skier.
