Paper Plate Art Toddler Activity

Nothing fancy but a fun quick craft activity with my two year old pterodactyl. We colored, traced stamped and stickered up several paper plates for festive fridge decoration (hello shamrock!) and greeting ‘cards’. Momma cut the center shape (heart, clover, etc) out at the end, but older kiddos could certainly practice scissor skills.   I did not trace out the shape to cut before coloring, so the ‘freehandedness’ makes each one of a kind. 🙂


  • Paper plates, cheaper the better
  • Markers, crayons, dot markers/daubers, paint
  • Stickers of all kinds
  • Glitter glue (if you dare)
  • Scissors
  • Permanent marker to write sentiments on at the end.

Go for it! Momma had fun making the too, something about those dauber markers… hmmmm.
