Wo boy! Christmas is rapidly approaching.
Time to catch up on some of the fun things we've been doing this season!
This past week we made some Christmas decorations out of paper plates. They turned out quite cute!
To make this craft you'll need:
- small paper plates
- tissue paper cut into squares
- liquid glue (with water added to make it more runny)
- two squares of black paper to attach back to back at the top of the ornament
- string or ribbon for hanging
We teachers prepared the plates in advance by taping the loop of ribbon to a square black piece of paper and then stapling this square to the top of the plate.
Add another black square paper to the back side if you don't want the taped ribbon to show.
Then the children painted the plate with the glue and stuck the tissue papers, decorations, and sparkles on top.
We had them decorate the front and back of the plate so that we could hang them in the windows on a paper garland.
We wanted them to look nice from both inside and out!
Next time around, I might have the children paint the plates first so that they look a little less "white" around the edges.
That would make the project a two step process, but it might be worth it!
