Easy Crafts Made from Paper Plates, Cups & Other Dishware

Posted by   + Show Post

Spend an afternoon with your little ones transforming ordinary paper plates and plastic utensils into entertaining craft projects.

Baby Bird NestBaby Bird Nest

Bring the outdoors inside by creating a cozy new home for these adorable pom-pom birds.

Make it: Cut a paper plate in half and staple the rims together (leaving the top of the "nest" open). After your kids paint it brown, help them glue shredded brown paper onto the front to add texture. Create the birds by gluing three blue pom-poms to the ends of Popsicle sticks. Add googly eyes and orange paper beaks for a little personality. Have your kids slide the ends of the Popsicle sticks between the plates so the baby birds can rest inside their new nest -- and even pop up when they get hungry!
