Here’s another contribution to my AWANA Cubbies Series. This Paper Plate Crown – AWANA Cubbies Bear Hug Craft #10 is an easy craft for preschool age kids and older. You’ll love having this simple crown idea in your repertoire for any number of reasons – whether teaching Cubbies or not, kids in your circle will love designing their own paper plate crown with just a few materials. The scripture for this lesson is “The Word of the Lord is right.” – Psalm 33:4 (printable included). The story in AWANA is about King Josiah. When Josiah became king, God’s scriptures had been lost and forgotten.  The word was discovered again when King Josiah decided to build up the destroyed temple. King Josiah read the book, knew it was the Word of God and told the people they needed to listen to the Word and learn the truth. This craft about a crown is a reminder of what King Josiah did as he re-established the importance of knowing God’s Word.

Materials Needed:

Paper Plate

Scissors

Crayons

Verse Printable

Buttons (optional)

Hot Glue (optional)

I wanted to provide the quick, visual tutorial for those that just get it. Although I know some appreciate this quick glance, I know most others appreciate a full tutorial that gives the step-by-step process.

1-#paper plate crown #cubbies bear hug 10 #AWANA crafts-004 Fold the paper plate in half.

1-#paper plate crown #cubbies bear hug 10 #AWANA crafts-005 There is absolutely no need to draw a dotted line on your paper plate. I did it on mine as a helpful visual for you to see where you cut. Essentially, you cut it like a pizza.

1-#paper plate crown #cubbies bear hug 10 #AWANA crafts-006 Most of the cuts you can do while the paper plate is folded. Do not cut all the way through. Cut it up to the ruffle edge of the plate.
