Christmas Paper Plate Crafts For Kids
Christmas is a time of fun and festivity. I’ve found over the years that my favorite traditions and activities for the kids tend to be simple, stress free and all about the experience. Enter paper plate crafts! These are fun crafts that everyone in the family can enjoy. Here are 10 Christmas paper plate crafts for kids (and kids at heart!).
Oh, Christmas Tree!
Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree!
How lovely are thy branches!
Your boughs so green and truly grand,
You even have a fancy stand!
See this one at A Little Learning for Two.
Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly, happy mate
With a paper hat and a button grin,
And a head made from a plate.
See how easy it is to make this one at home!
Deck The Halls
Deck the halls of boughs of holly, Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-a!
‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la!
Hang we now our wreath of paper, Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la!
With bow and candle this is no caper, Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la!
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening.
Snow globes will elate,
When made from paper plates,
Crafting in a winter wonderland.
Candy Cane Lane
Just a hint of peppermint
And everything begins to feel like Christmas!
There’s nothin’ like a sweet walk path,
So baby let’s go take a stroll down Candy Cane Lane.
Purchase a pack of these cute peppermint swirl paper plates at Etsy, then use them to create giant peppermint candies to line your lawn. Just adhere two plates together, bottom sides facing away from each other, and mount them on a wood dowel. Add cellophane and a bow for effect!
