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! This post is for all the Frog-o fans and how to make a Frog-o plate.
What you’ll need:
• 2 green paper plates
• 1 red paper plate
• 1/2 black paper plate
• Kid-safe scissors
1. Cut out a quarter of a green plate, leaving the curved edge intact. The shape is like a rounded triangle. Line up the shape to another quarter of the plate and cut the same shape out.
2. Cut the red plate in half. Cut a one-and-a-half-inch strip from the middle of the plate. Cut one end of the strip so that it curves. This is Frog-o’s tongue.
3. Using the white side of the black plate, draw two circles with one-inch diameters. Cut these circles out and glue them onto the green triangle shapes.
4. Cut a little less than a quarter of an inch off the top of the other green plate. Glue the green triangles onto the top of the green plate, with the curves upward.
5. Glue Frog’s tongue to the bottom of the plate. With the straight edge of the black plate still intact, cut a quarter-of-an-inch strip. Position it on the green plate so the curves line up, and glue it down above his tongue. Yup, this is his mouth.
