This second DIY idea made with a paper plate is a bit more sophisticated. You’ll need different tones of grey, or the colour you prefer, some lace, scissors, bubble wrap and a cylinder.

Paper plate crafts are fun and this is a great example of it. Cover a cylinder with bubble wrap, paint the bubble warp with different tones of the colour you’ve chosen (in this case, they’ve opted for green tones) and paint your paper plate.

As you can see, the bubble wrap leave a lot of points of different tones of green over the paper plate and it creates a truly beautiful and funny effect.

Jellyfishes with paper plates and fabrics

If your children prefer sea animals, these jellyfishes are a really fun option for doing paper plate crafts. For making this craft, you’ll need paper plates, pieces of fabrics with different textures, some paper for the eyes and paint.

These jellyfishes are beautiful. You could even hang it from the ceiling to make them look as if they were swimming in your children’s room.
