Hooray for paper plates!
That wonderful, inexpensive and surprisingly versatile craft medium for kids! It took us a while to fall in love with paper plates for crafting (we do still rather adore a TP Roll Craft), but eventually we did see the light – Paper Plates are simply fabulous for kids to get crafty with and is particularly great for preschoolers. Preschoolers love to slap on a bit of paint and create. So we have brought together 15 wonderful Paper Plate crafts for you to check out with your kids. They are bright, they are colourful and they are fun! I have grouped the paper plate crafts for you too – there are paper plate bags, paper plate masks, paper plate “play things” and paper plate decorations! Browse, enjoy and get crafty!

Such a sweet and whimiscal May Day Umbrella Purse. It looks so very pretty with the Spring Flowers.
We have long been a fan of Bunny Purses! Here is one such example.
These make cute little Easter Baskets – but decorate them differently and they would look great for Mother’s Day too!
