We've designed some easy summer crafts to help keep your kids creatively active this vacation season. In our book, paper plates make for a really great craft material.
Most everyone has them on hand, they're relatively inexpensive, and there are loads of things that you can make with them. As a matter of fact, we use them a lot!
Here's the latest paper plate craft that Maya's come up with. Check it out!
Let's see what you'll need to make this craft:
One paper plate
Acrylic paints (red, white, green, and black)
Paintbrushes (one thick, one thin for the seeds)
1. Fold the paper plate in half.
2. Paint each side like a watermelon. Use our picture for reference. Let dry.
3. Hold the folded paper plate on one side, stuff with newspaper, and staple shut.
Note: You can also cut the paper plate and half and after painting it, staple it all around, which is what we did. That way both sides dry at the same time.
That's it! Piece of cake...or should I say watermelon?
