Paper Plate Dinosaur Craft

Paper Plate Dinosaurs are the perfect craft for toddlers...especially if you have a friend over to play. They allow for creativity, individuality, and they aren't too frustrating for little hands to finish.

All you need is:
  • Paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Paint or markers
  • Construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • Googly eyes
  1. Cut the paper plates in half and hand each kid a half. 
  2. Get them painting or coloring and cut out legs, tails and heads in coordinating colored construction paper. I just free-handed these.
  3. When the plate is dry, have them glue the head, legs and tail to their dinosaur.
  4. Add googly eyes and draw on a mouth.
  5. You're done! Admire the cute little dinosaurs :)
Thank you I Heart Arts and Crafts for the fun idea! I'm linking up to the Happiness is Homemade link party.

Pikachu Cake

When I made a bunny cake for my 2 year old's birthday, my son said I could make his cake the same way...but a Pikachu cake! I think it turned out quite well, and my little Pokemon fan was happy.

The steps for making a Pikachu cake are the same as a bunny cake...you will need white frosting, yellow frosting, Fruit Roll-Ups, mini marshmallows, and chocolate frosting.

Recycled Turtle Craft

My boys got a pet turtle last fall, so turtles have been a popular topic here. One day, my 4 year old asked if we could make a turtle craft so I looked through my stash and we made these:

Here's what you'll need to make your own cute little turtles: applesauce cups (washed and dried), green craft foam (or construction paper), googly eyes, scissors, permanent markers, glue sticks.
