Little Hands Paper Plate Crafts: Creative Art Fun for 3-7 Year Olds
Laura Check, drawing from her 10 years of experience as a preschool teacher, brings this kid-tested art form to a whole new level of ingenuity! Quick, easy, and inexpensive as always, these crafts are so innovative and exciting that kids of all ages will be clamouring to join in the fun. Kids create incredible works of art using foil, feathers, seeds, sequins, buttons, coloured paper, tempera paint, markers, paper streamers – and, of course, paper plates! Clear illustrations with concise directions make the ‘doing’ accessible to even the smallest hands. Kids imagine coloured creatures as individual as they are: a hard-shelled ‘button’ tortoise; a glittering rainbow fish; an octopus with moving tentacles; a sparkling, wall-long caterpillar; and wild-looking dinos of their own design. Hats, hats, and more hats! Kids try out different careers in ‘Hats for a Day’, where kids make paper plate hats for varied jobs. Plus wonderfully silly and funky hats, too. Kids join the adventure of here-to-here with a paper plate compass, an out-of-this-world flying saucer, a movable vehicle, and a spinning helicopter. Plus, stories to read when the projects are complete tie reading and doing together in the minds of emergent readers. All of this in a paper plate craft book? Why, yes! It’s Williamson way.
