We’ve shared quite a few Supertato activities before and in all honesty I love seeing how popular they are because it’s one of my kids favourite books and it’s one of my favourites too. Of course we all love Supertato himself but I think you have to love the Evil Pea too?! Personally I’m a great believer that some vegetables are frozen for a very good reason and I know that if I was writing about an evil vegetable I’d probably have to go with a pea too!

Paper Plate Evil Pea
This craft is super easy to make and is based on the picture on the front cover of Supertato: Evil Pea Rules (which you’ll be not at all surprised to learn we also own and love as well as the original book.) Start by painting a paper plate green, if you are out of paint you could colour it using green pens or tear some green tissue paper up and use that to cover your paper plate.
The eye mark is made from black card, pick a bit that’s a bit wider than your paper plate so that once it’s stuck down you can neaten up the edges if you want. As paper plates are obviously a bit rounded at the edge I’ve used double sided sellotape to hold the mask in place but if you’re ok with it not sticking quite to the edges then normal school glue will be fine.
The eyes were cut out of some scrap white paper and glued on and then I’ve drawn in the eyeballs using a black pen. Finally the arms, legs and mouth have been cut out of green paper and stuck on but if you’re child would prefer you could draw these on with a pen – felt tips can be a bit useless for drawing on painted surfaces so I normally go with paint pens like these instead. Your Evil Pea is now finished and ready to display with pride or wreck havoc on your other veggies – your call!
