People Plates

You will need:

  • Paper Plates
  • Feathers
  • Felt
  • Google Eyes
  • Scrap of Fabric
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Funky Foam
  • Paint


The beauty of these ‘people plates’ is that you can use your imagination and create any character you want. You could even make a Mummy or Daddy face!

  1. To make a pirate paint the plate and leave to dry. Cut out a semi circle of fabric to make the hat then tie a small strip of fabric and stick onto the side. Make the eye patch and moustache using funky foam. With a black marker draw on some stubble. Make the gold earring using a pipe cleaner.
  2. To make a Native American girl cut out a long bob shape from black felt. Cut three strips on both sides of the bob and plait. Secure with pipe cleaner. Stick feathers to a strip of cardboard for head band and add beads to decorate. Make the lips using funky foam. Stick on google eyes.
