60+ Paper Plate Crafts and Activities

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

We have made our fair share of paper plate crafts over the years and I always seem to have paper plates around so I thought I’d gather some of the best paper plate activity ideas from around the web and list them conveniently in one place.

For myself, I know that since we usually have paper plates in the house, I’m happy to have more ideas in my arsenal to be able to draw from the next time the kids are bored or for when the snow starts falling and we can’t go out as much anymore. Hopefully, you’ll find some ideas you like and can use with your kids too!
