Sometimes my kids demand that we must make something right here right now and this simple polar bear craft for kids is the result of this weeks demands! I’ve shared some arctic animal crafts for kids before and my son has been desperate to make a polar bear, perhaps it’s the cold weather at the moment? Paper plate crafts are always among my favourites as they’re just so easy and cheap to make and this activity is an absolute winner as we put it together just using things we found around the house.
It feels like we haven’t done any paper plate crafts in a while, unusual for us as they’re normally our fall back craft activity in this house, paper plates are so cheap and there’s so many things you can make from them! My kids made these paper plate parrots after school this week and they were a great way to do a bit of crafting together and have a bit of screen-free chill out time. We loved using the feathers to make our paper plates feel more like birds!
This paper plate umbrella craft for kids is such a simple and cute idea you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it before! I find that my kids need something to do after school otherwise they get a little… antsy. But if it’s anything too complicated then they tend to get upset as they’re normally worn out by then. This kids craft gets the balance right and it’s also good fun if you’re trying to teach about weather as we’ve tried out a simple add-on activity to make it a little more interesting!
We love paper plate crafts as they are so cheap to do and so much fun for the kids! I always keep a big stack of paper plates in my cupboard so that the kids can get creative when them whenever they want. This guide will give you seasonal paper plate crafts for every month of the year, but don’t forget to check out all our paper plate crafts if you’d like some more cheap craft ideas!
After an attempt at making traditional paper snowflakes last week I got fed up pretty quickly when they didn’t form the shape I wanted. We are huge fans of paper plate crafts so I figured paper plate snowflakes would be the perfect way to get a pretty round snowflake craft that would also be durable enough for the kids to decorate. This easy craft for kids is simple to adapt for different ages and I rather enjoyed helping out with it too!
