My children have loved decorating paper plates from an early age! A toddler can make handprints or footprints on one and use it as a keepsake. My sun and eskimo are examples of a good paper plate craft for 2 year olds. 

Older kids might want to cut plates and stick things onto them. They can create people, places and decorations.

I have ideas for every single season of the year!! Please check out my new Halloween paper plate crafts and a few Christmas ones too. 

Previously I have made lots of animals from paper plates and played pretend zoo with my kids!
