Day #167 – Spiral Paper Plates


Spiral Paper Plates

This spiral paper plates craft was a craft all my kids could do. It is a great craft option for kids of all ages and easy to put together for larger numbers of children. It would be wonderful for a preschool class or older. These twirling paper plates cost pennies to make and add  fun whimsical decor as they spin in the wind.

Materials Needed

~ Flimsy Paper Plates

~ Sharpies

~ Scissors

~ String

Written Instructions

I took a flimsy paper plate and drew a spiral on it with a Sharpie marker. The marker line was most helpful for my oldest who wanted to be a bit more intentional in her drawings. The line also became the place I would cut later. Then, I just let them lose with pens. They colored to their hearts’ desire. When they were done, I simply cut the spiral out of the paper plate, put a hole and yarn on one end and hung them up. The fun part about these plates is that it was a breezy day, and they would twirl and twirl in the wind.
