Paper Plate Football Player

K, 6 & Up

This is such an easy idea--if you are looking for something fun to do with your little boy--this is it!

To make this craft you will need:
  • 2 paper plates
  • Crayons, markers or paint
  • Scissors
  • Stapler (or tape)
First color or paint the inside of your paper plate skin color, or forget that part and add your face (eyes, nose, mouth, etc).

Now, turn the other paper plate over and draw a half circle INSIDE the circle that is already in the middle of a paper plate.

I cut in two small rectangles underneath the half circle to give it more of a face mask look. If you child is more into football they may have better ideas to make him more realistic.

Now, staple or tape your face mask/helmet to your football player.

I like the way this player came out, but you could paint or color the top part of the face mask/helmet to match your child's favorite team, or let him or her create their own team and design.
