Paper Plate Pet Craft - Craft Show for Kids with Free Printable Animal Faces Coloring Sheets.

We have a new craft show for kids today! Watch Siena in her “I’ll Show You How” craft show as she shows you how to make a paper plate pet.

Remember, all crafts are from the brain of my five year old daughter. Believe me when I say, I’ve tried to give her ideas and she will have none of it… they must be her idea and original craft idea or she won’t do the show. ha! So bear with her, as some of this craft might seem easy for an adult, but it’s pretty hard for a kid! I think she showed great patience in this video. A good lesson for all kids out there!

First, she created a lion, which I thought she was going to show in her video. But she changed her mind and made a cat, because she had wrapped the lion as a Christmas gift for her Daddy. I was not allowed to open the gift to show her lion on the video, so I made my own as you will see her display in the video. Ha!

It’s always a surprise as what she will do next. I hope you and your kids enjoy her latest show!

If you can not see the video, view it on YouTube here.

  1. Amy, I am in 4-H, and I was wondering if it would be okay if I used your idea as a working exhibit project. I would demonstrate and guide other kids at the county fair how to make their own Paper Plate Pet. I would source you and your blog on my instructions and posters.

    Please and thank you! 🙂

  2. Amy you have a sweet little lady! So cute. I would love to make the pet faces on the plates using the printable coloring sheets but I can't seem to find where to print. This is what is says under "download coloring sheets here" [download id="16"]. Can you help me? Sorry I'm not good at this. I did check in the free printables at the top but I might not have pick the right section in which to look.
