There is something magical about the winter months that just want me to stay indoors and get crafty with or without my children. Doing the activities for advent is a wonderful excuse (as if I needed one) for getting crafty with my children.
Paper plates… What a wondrous material to have in the craft box. The can be made into all sorts of things. In fact, I’m not even sure whether J knows what their true function is!
This particular craft is a little more challenging for toddlers, but only due to the cutting and folding.
Christmas/ angelic decorations
Copy the template onto the paper plate. (I used a glue stick to get the head exactly round.)
Draw on the face and stick hair onto the back of the head.
Decorate the semi-circle with glitter, gem stickers, stars etc.
Bend the semi-circle round and slide it together at the slits. (Grown ups might need to help on this one.)
Staple/ sticky tape the angel dress together to guarantee that it remains standing.
Ta-da, a quick craft activity, that doubles as a tree ornament.
