What can you make with paper plates?

  • animals like a lion, butterfly, pig, bear, cow, lamb, turtle, and more!
  • fruit like apples, oranges, watermelon, etc…

How do you make a paper plate sunflower?

  2. trace hands onto the yellow paper. I was able to get 2 hands traced on 1 piece of paper
  3. spread some glue onto the middle part of the plate
  4. pour a bunch of sunflower seeds onto the glue and spread them out
  5. next, place the cut-out handprints into a circle – fingers outward
  6. add some glue to the palms of the handprints
  7. place the plate into the middle of the palms so the fingers are pointing outward from the plate
  8. let dry
  9. If you want to – add a cute straw and a paper leaf to embellish your sweet sunflower even more

Hang and enjoy
