This was a great activity for a day at home. We used things we already had around the house and it occupied my kids for a good, long while. I love doing crafts and I especially love them when they are as easy as this one! I got this idea from Kelli, but adapted it using what we already had around the house. She has step by step instructions on her blog so go there to see how to do it.
Cut up some tissue paper into squares. I just used some already used paper from a gift bag and it worked fine!
Cut out the center of a paper plate. I had to use a knife to start it off.
Then I just used scissors to cut out a hole in the center of the plate.
It looked like this when I was done. Totally not perfect but it didn't matter!
Then I turned the kids loose. Once I knew that they knew what they were doing, I went and took a shower. By the time I got out, they had run out of green tissue paper and needed me to cut more. (We used two sheets of green and half a sheet of red and made three small wreaths.)
This one said he absolutely didn't want to make one when I called him in to get started. See that happy, proud smile on his face? He totally loved doing it and has his hung up in his room.
