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.
My five year old is an aspiring hockey star. She loves it on the ice and I love watching her. An old photo of her on skates inspired this paper plate ice skater craft. If you are looking for a cute and sweet winter project, don’t look any further. These adorable ice skaters are a fun winter craft with an interactive twist. Your kids will love coloring in the printable templates. They can add their own faces or draw in ones of their own design.
There are not many things cuter than an adorable waddling penguin, except for maybe three adorable waddling penguins. These penguins look like they are waddling in this easy rocking paper plate penguin craft.
Vampirina Mania has taken over our house. My daughter cannot get enough of that adorable little vampire. I have to admit, I like her too. It is such a cute cartoon about a little vampire girl just trying to find her place in the human world with a little help from her human and not-so-human friends. Our new favorite character inspired this vampire girl paper plate mask.
Hypnotize your friends with this simple paper plate craft. Here’s how we made this colorful and groovy paper plate spinning wheel.
These hand fans are an easy and lovely craft for the spring and summer.
We made pretty Asian style hand fans for the Lunar New Year a few months back. They were such a big hit and so much fun to make that we wanted to make more for the spring and summer. I love these fans. They are simple to make and the kids will enjoy decorating them with their own designs.
Moana fans will love these Kakamora inspired coconut pirate crafts.
Moana is the new favorite movie in our house. My daughter just can’t get enough of it. There are so many wonderful songs and characters in the film. The funniest of the characters are the coconut pirates called the Kakamora. They are cute and deadly.
My daughter and I both wanted to make a craft inspired by the nutty pirates. I had an idea to make them out of a paper plate. My daughter had an entirely different idea in mind. She wanted to make hers with foam and paper. Here is how they both came out. Also, check out our Moana inspired flower crown.
Do you have a little Moana fan in your midst? If you do they will love this Moana inspired flower crown.
Moana madness has hit our home. Our little girl loves the brave and feisty Moana (affiliate link). We have watched the movie more times than I can tell you and there is no sign of our daughter losing interest any time soon. She has even already requested a Moana themed birthday party for next year. With as crazy as my daughter is for this adventurous young girl, I wanted to make her a little something special (with her help). Moana wears a few different crowns and headpieces throughout the film, but I love her simple leaf and flower crown. I thought this would be perfect for a little pretend play.
Have you ever tried painting with tissue paper? This bleeding tissue paper Earth is perfect for Earth Day.
Painting with bleeding tissue paper is a favorite of ours. I am not sure what is more fun, ripping up the pieces of tissue paper or using the spray bottle and watching the colors run. Either way, we love this process. We have made snowflakes for the winter and spooky trees for the fall. The spring is here and Earth Day is right around the corner. This bleeding tissue paper Earth seemed like the perfect craft.
