We love sharing paper plate crafts and I think this snowflake paper plate twirler might be my new favourite thing? Not only is it a great way to promote scissor skills it’s good for fine motor skills too and did I mention it looks pretty? It looks super pretty, imagine a ton of these hanging up in your home or classroom all spinning around!

I’m a huge fan of simple crafts for kids so for me this New Years Eve paper plate 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.

I think this movable penguin paper plate craft might one of my most favourite things I’ve ever shared on here? It’s super cute and it makes a lovely winter craft for kids too. I’ve shared some penguin crafts for kids before – I still kinda love this upcycled penguin lantern, but this craft is great for using as a puppet too – meaning that you get to play with it once the making fun is over.

As the weather turns colder we’re always after ideas that we can do inside in the warm and these winter tree painting ideas for kids are a great place to start, I’m sharing three ideas today but I’d love to hear what ideas you and your kids come up with for making some easy winter art! Today’s activity uses one of our free templates to help make it that bit quicker for you to set up so that you can concentrate instead on having fun and getting creative.

We love making paper plate crafts, in fact I’m more than happy to admit that this paper plate Santa twirler was my daughters idea! A couple of weeks ago she saw the snowman paper plate twirler I shared, made one herself and then decided to make a Santa version as she thought that would be even better. Now I love the snowman version but Santa? Well everyone loves Santa, right?! This is a really cute and simple Christmas decoration for kids to make and would be a great way to practice scissor skills too.
