Looking for an easy to make craft to do with your toddler?
How about trying to make an Paper Plate Autumn Wreath
like my daughter Melody and I did over the weekend?
What You’ll Need:
1 Paper Plate
1 Yellow Crayon or whatever colors you want to use
Red, Yellow, & Orange Construction Paper ( also you can use other colors too)
Scissors, Glue, Patience, and more than willing Toddler!
Take a Paper Plate and Have your child color it what color (s) you or they choose. We went with a yellow and my daughter had a lot of fun doing that.
Find a variety of leaf patterns or draw your own to cut out to use on the wreath. I found some great ones to print out here or I am sure you could find some premade cut out leaves too.
Start cutting out leaves for your child to glue on the wreath. I folded my construction paper as many times as I could, traced a leaf pattern, and then cut through the folded paper. This saved me a lot of time and cutting! I would say around twenty leaves or so would be a good number for this project.
Prep your child’s craft area! I let my daughter work over a plastic table cloth and a wipe able place mat especially since glue is involved and if you value your table.
Let the creating begin! I had my daughter glue all around the paper plate and then let her place the leaves in whatever way she wanted! She had a blast and we’ll be looking to make another wreath once the Christmas season is among us!
