We always keep a stack of paper plates in our “Making Box” for splodging paint onto for easy clean up when we are getting arty. Paper plates are also very handy to turn into all sorts of fun things in arts and crafts activities. We made some super cute baby farm animals recently for a guest post over on Mess for Less. And this week we have had our paper plates out again.

My kids loved picking out the different colours and it doubled up as a great colour recognition practice for my toddler as well. Our paper plate crazy chicks will take pride of place, when we put up our Easter decorations when the kids break up from school.
