Paper Plate Stencils

Sorry for the long delays between posting, we are doing a lot of work on Bubble's ABA program which is taking up most (all really!) of our spare time. Both Bubble and Squeak are showing benefits from it though, so we're very excited about that :-)
This activity is one we have done a few times before using both ice cream container lids and paper plates. We find the paper plate versions last for quite a few uses and the the lids last indefinitely.


* paper plates
* scissors
* pen/texta
* paint
* paper
* paint brush

Draw your stencil designs directly onto the base of your plates (or lids).

Cut out carefully using scissors or a craft knife.


  1. This is a brilliant idea! Will definitely be using it!

  2. What a stupendous idea! Your newest follower!

  3. Fabulous idea! Thanks for sharing!


  4. Great idea! My Kinders will LOVE this! THANK YOU so much for sharing!!!!

  5. These would also be great for a cake with no frosting. Place the plate over the cake and use powdered sugar as the "paint" just sift it above the stencil. You can also use the food spray "paint" and spray over the top of the stencil. Very versital project.

  6. Awesome, thank you for sharing
