BACK TO SCHOOL PHOTO PAPER PLATE CRAFT – MATERIALS: 

* 2 paper plates (9” each)

* Tiny yearly head shots of your child. I printed 6 photos in one 4×6” paper.

* A brad pin

* Markers for drawing and coloring

* Basic stationery like double sided tape/glue and a pair of scissors

Watch the video tutorial or follow the step by step instructions below.

BACK TO SCHOOL PHOTO PAPER PLATE CRAFT INSTRUCTIONS: 

Step 1: Cut a small rectangle (around 2” by 1.5”) at the edge of the first paper plate.

Step 2: Draw a body (without the head) below the rectangle.

Step 3: Write ‘I am ___ year(s) old’ under the drawing of the body.

Step 4: Cut a small square at the blank in the sentence above.

Step 5: Personalize the paper plate with your child’s name and/or a message.

Step 6: Color your drawings if you like to.

Step 7: Place the second paper plate behind and secure at the center with the brad pin.

Step 8: Cut out the headshots of your child. Stick the first headshot (at age 0) in the big rectangular space. The headshot should look connected to the drawing of the body.

Step 9: Rotate the first paper plate around 2” to the right and stick the second headshot (at age 1 year old) in the empty space. Repeat this step until all headshots are attached to the paper plate.

Step 10: Rotate to the age 0 headshot and fill in the number for the age in the small square space. Repeat for all the headshots.
