Easy President's Day Paper Plate Mask Craft

 Here’s a simple, fun craft to do for President’s Day, the third Monday of February.


  • 1 medium paper plate (about 7 inches wide is good)
  • 1 black hat paper cutout
  • 1 craft stick/popsicle stick
  • Black tempura paint
  • Sponge pieces
  • Tape

1. Cut out the center of the paper plate, so only the rim is left.
2. Dip a small sponge in black paint and dab on the rim. Cover about half to make the beard. Allow to dry.
3. On the opposite side, tape the popsicle stick for the handle.
4. Tape on the hat cutout on top.

This is great for a lesson about President’s day or Abraham Lincoln. You could use them to make a short presentation or play.

This and hundreds of other simple and easy craft ideas are from the "Arts and Craft For All Seasons" series books for Preschool/Kindergarten and 1st through 3rd grade. The crafts are fun, simple, and easily adaptable. These books are a great resource and are a must have for any preschool-K or early elementary program.
