This is a cute and easy Christmas wreath you can make from a paper plate. Great for your kindergarten class.
Materials: For each child, prepare:
one paper plate
short length of red ribbon
cute ribbon, macaroni, or shell pasta and Christmas theme pasta (if you can find it.)
red, green, and white tempura paints.
glitter glue or glitter
Before the craft:
Paint the pasta red and white, allow to dry.
Cut the center out of the paper plates, one for each child.
Punch a hole at the top.
Put students' names on the paper plate.
With the kids:
Have the kids paint their paper plate ring green on both sides.
Put on colorful pasta around the ring. (The paint should act as a glue)
Sprinkle on glitter or put on lines of glitter glue, allow to dry.
Help the students loop the ribbon through the hole at the top and hang up your wreaths.
You can decide how much you want the kids to do themselves. If they do everything, it should be in two parts. To cut the middle out of the paper plate, bend the plate in the middle without folding. Then cut a slit from the middle to the inner edge of the ring. After that, open the plate and start from the slit to cut around the edge. The green paint should act as a glue for the pasta and the glitter. Have fun.
