Who loves paper plate crafts as much as I do? A paper plate is one of my favourite craft supplies. Aside from being easy to find and inexpensive, they’re SO versatile. If we’re ever stuck for a craft idea here in my daycare, with just a little imagination, we can almost always think of something to make out of a paper plate!
Here are 17 of my favourite paper plate crafts for toddlers and preschoolers. They’re perfect for the home or classroom, or for those days when you just want a quick and easy craft to make with your child.
