We love creating and doing fun activities for kids with leaves because they are, after all, one of nature’s most frugal craft materials. And oh so versatile!

This time we combine leaves with another fun supply for kids, the super frugal paper plate – and make all kinds of silly hairstyles and faces. Paper plate activities for kids are the best!

There really are no rules on how you can make this one and there are certainly no rules as to which sheets to use – choose as many different types as possible to give to your kids or students ( this one is great to do in kindergarten or kindergarten) as much of an open-ended project as possible. You can even make it a “self-portrait” art activity!

Make sure the leaves are dried before you start making this craft, even more so if you want to keep this craft project as a display – as leaves that aren’t completely dry yet will wrinkle and curl over time, while the dry ones will keep their shape. .

We dry ours by placing them between sheets of newspaper and weighing them down with books. We also make a point of picking the leaves after a few sunny days, never directly after a rainy day.

Paint the paper plate. We like to use sponge brushes because they are quick and easy to paint.

Once fully painted, allow the paint to dry.

You can cut the stipules.

Apply a generous amount of glue to the edge of the top half of the paper plate.

Start laying down the leaves.

Add glue to the leaves wherever you like.

Keep going until you get a nice hairstyle.

Press with your hands (or an object) so that the glue sets and dries a little.

Cut two circles out of white paper. Alternatively, you can also paint or draw the eyes directly onto the paper plate.

Draw in details.

Glue the eyes to the paper plate.

Draw other facial details.

Or cut them out of colored paper, newsprint… Or all sorts of other materials.
