Tot Thursday: Paper Plate Tree

I'm making a change to my Thursdays. I'm taking out Scrapbook Thursday for the moment. I'm just not scrapbooking right now. Hopefully soon I will get some done and then start up again.

So instead, I'm going to share a kid craft. One to do with your kids. This blog takes a lot of my time and sometimes I feel guilty that I'm not spending it with my kids. I get so wrapped up in a project sometime, that I neglect them. So I'm going to try to do some kind of craft once a week with them and then post it on here.

Good thing there is Pinterest, so I can find the ideas on there! I got this idea from here.

You'll need some paper plates, paint and then things to decorate your tree. We used shiny paper and glitter glue.

Here is how we made them:
1) I cut out paper plates and then they painted them

2) Glued on the ornaments (not sure what my 2 year old is gluing....)

Super easy and fun for kids of all ages! You could even put on a TP roll too.

I make my kids paint shirtless too - - makes for easier clean-up!
