Clump-o-Lump Paper Plates
Spend a day with the little ones, turning leftover party plates into a few of your favorite Clump-o-Lump characters. These party plates work great as summer puppet show masks, bedroom decor, or even as a way to save your favorite snacks from falling on the floor.
Click on a character and get to crafting:
• Child-safe scissors
• Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive
• (Not shown) Standard ruler
• (Not shown) Newspapers or a tablecloth to cover your work space. Just in case!
What you’ll need:
• 1 and 1/2 black plates
• 2 yellow plates
• 1/2 plate of any color (you will use the white side only)
1. Using the scissors, cut the curved edges off of the any-colored paper plate.
2. Using a pencil, draw two small arches away from the straight edge. Then cut the shapes out. These will be Bee-o’s teeth!
3. Cut off the edges of the black plate. Then, cut two, three-fourths-of-an-inch thick strips. Cut the edges of one side of the strip, so the tips are round. These are Bee-o’s antennae.
4. Using leftover scraps from the same black plate, draw two circles, with one-inch diameters. Draw another circle that’s three-fourth-of-an-inch in diameter. Cut all of these out and glue them down accordingly, using the two one-inch circles as Bee-o’s eyes and the other circle as her nose.
5. Using the already-halved black paper plate, cut off a half-inch strip and then a quarter-inch strip. Align the half-inch strip toward the bottom of the plate, so the curves of each black strip align with the yellow plate. Then, leaving space in between, align the quarter-inch strip above the half-inch strip. Glue them both down. These are Bee-o’s stripes.
6. Glue the teeth below the first strip, and glue the eyes and nose.
7. Align the curves of the antennae with the plate and glue down.
8. Using the white side of the other yellow plate, draw two wings, about four inches long. Cut them out and glue them on the plate with the white side facing up.
