For the Love of Paper Plates {not just for picnics anymore!}

Paper plates are just so awesome! They save my hands from washing, my plants from dripping, my foam paintbrushes from staining stuff, and oh-so-many other helpful things!

But, since I’ve had kids, one of my FAVE USES of ALL TIME for paper plates is cheap, easy, adorable and fun CRAFTS!!! I bet the number of arts and crafts creations my 3 kids have produced from paper plates would number up into the hundreds! So fun and (almost) always on hand :) Today, I’d like to reminisce and share a few fun paper plate crafts fit for the Fall season with y’all!

Love this one, too!  This one would be fun to let the little ones (and not-so-little-ones!) at the “kids table” at Thanksgiving assemble for a fun activity during the holiday.
The list of paper plate crafts and fun could go on and on and on…. In fact, here’s a link where you can find scads of creative paper plate ideas:


Do you love paper plates and their unlimited uses as much as I do?
