DIYs – Paper plate

Me and my 5 yr old daughter both loves to do Easy DIYs whenever we have free time. We love crafting and make our home a mess togather. We are always looking for some Easy DIYs which looks lovely and funny too. This one is the easiest of all which takes no time to prepare and every child can do that alone too.

Paper plate DIYs

Use Paper plates to create the characters which will turn up to a creative design.


Both of us love to create something unique and this time we have tried making Jellyfish from Paperplate that will make everyone happy. I have seen so much interaction with kids when they make it themselves. They love to save them from anything, thinking as they are real for them.

Complete it with easy steps to follow. I am sure every kid will love to do this.
