We recently visited the Arts Festival in my hometown and saw this fun activity, so we thought we's share. It's super easy and can be done inside or out.
You'll need cheap plastic dessert plates, sharpie markers, and a drill (or a hot nail).
Preheat your oven to 350, or you can use your grill on medium. Have your child draw and color on the plate. The more color they add, the more colorful the end result will be.
Next place the plates on a foil lined pan and bake for 5-10 minutes (honestly I'm kind of guessing at the bake times. Just wait for them to curl up). Let them cool slightly before lifting them onto a cooling rack.
Drill some holes, or melt the plastic with a hot nail. We strung ours up with twine, but you could also turn them into magnets, or make a windchime. Their are lots of possibilities!
Hope you enjoy!
