My love for paper plate crafts for kids keep growing. They love them so much and I love spending time together making all kinds of fun things! It started with a simple rainbow craft and now we are drowning in crafty paper plate goodness! When I wrote this post, I had 27 crafts to share; that number has since continued to increase. :-p

We’ve made marine animals, zoo animals, movie characters, foods, aliens and more. Some are very easy and will be great for toddlers and some will require a little more adult support or will work best for older children. There’s something here for everyone!

Tip: Cutting the paper plates is super quick and easy if you use an X-Acto knife. Of course, scissors don’t necessarily take a lot of time to use, but using the X-Acto knife has made cutting out the shapes and stuff needed for certain crafts a lot easier!
