Paper Plate Craft Ideas

This is a simple idea, but a great one to keep kids busy while preparing a meal. Invest in a few clear glass plates (an easy and inexpensive find in a thrift store). Have the child draw a picture on the paper plate.

Then, when they are done, place it under the glass plate for them to see while eating. You could have them make one for each member of the family to keep them busy even longer.

The photo shows a 6 inch paper plate, but this can be done on the larger paper plates also.
