Does your toddler like to hold little knick knacks or collect them in her pockets? If so, your child will love wearing this
adorable paper plate toddler pouch!
It's a wonderful accessory to store all her precious and interesting discoveries. I find it very cute to see my little hoarder carrying it around with her as she traipses all about the house and the park.
How to Make a Paper Plate Toddler Pouch
- Gather these simple art and craft materials: 2 paper plates, scissors, stapler, ribbon and decorative stickers
- Cut 1 paper plate into half
- Hold the halved paper plate against the other full paper plate, with the perimeters flat against each other to form a pouch
- Staple the paper plates together
- I stapled the ribbon to the paper plates (because I don't own a hole-puncher 😂) but you could punch two holes on the top of the full paper plate to form the handle if you have one
- Decorate the pouch with stickers, markers or crayons. You can engage your little helper in this art and craft activity
- Hang the pouch over your child's shoulder or around her neck
And now your little one has a personal belonging to call her own!
Caution: Parental supervision is needed when your child is wearing the pouch because there is a risk of strangulation with a long ribbon handle.
