It’s not long now until Chinese New Year and this movable Chinese dragon paper plate craft is a great way to help excite the kids about the celebrations. Since having children we’ve celebrated Chinese New Year every year, after Christmas and New Year it feels like a long time until anything exciting and the weather is normally a bit miserable so an excuse to eat great food and make some Chinese New Year crafts has always been very popular here!

This is a snowman paper plate craft with a difference – it moves and dances around! This fun snowman puppet craft is easy to make and it looks super cute too. It’s the sister craft to the movable penguin paper plate craft I shared a couple of weeks ago and it would be great fun to mix them up too for a fun little winter puppet show.

I’m a huge fan of simple crafts for kids so for me this New Years Eve craft ticks all sorts of boxes – it’s made from a paper plate, which this time of year is the kind of thing I often have knocking around anyway, it’s got a slight educational slant promoting scissor skills and fine motor skills and most importantly it’s sparkly and looks pretty – surely a must for New Years Eve! These would make great decorations for an event too or spinning and playing with them should keep the kids busy for a bit.

Last year at school my son studied The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and I remember thinking at the time that there weren’t that many The Snail and the Whale crafts about so after making our movable paper plate ghost last week I thought it would be fun to try and make a little craft of the two friends off on their adventure around the world!

A quick little post from me today as I was just looking through some old photos and found this sweet paper plate sea collage that my daughter made – how could I forget to share this?! We love all ocean crafts (you can see all our sea crafts for kids here) ad this was inspired by a sea collage we’d seen out on a walk that week – ¬†while it’s super simple it’s also super cute too. As is often the case here it’s made with things that we already had around the house, no news there as I very rarely get any advance warning from the kids!
