president-activity

Are you looking for a crafty way to celebrate President’s Day with your preschooler? Your creative kiddo can get artsy with an easy puppet-making activity. With a few simple materials your child can magically transform plain paper plates into presidential puppets.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Paper plates
  • Card stock paper (8×10-inch sheets)
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Masking tape
  • Thick craft sticks
  • Markers or crayons
  • Scissors

How To Art-Making Steps

  1. Pick a president. If your child doesn’t know exactly what the president looks like, look through books or find images/portraits online.
  2. Your child can draw the president’s face onto the front of the paper plate.
  3. Create hair, a beard (such as Lincoln’s) or a hat with the card stock paper. help your child to draw the shapes and cut them out.
  4. Glue the hair, beard, hat or other accessory to the paper plate. Let the glue dry completely.
  5. Tape the craft stick to the back of the plate to create a handle for the puppet.

Now your kiddo is ready for hours of dramatic puppet play. Make a few puppets to stage a family President’s Day show or turn the puppets into costume-like masks. Just cut the center of the plate out (where your child has drawn the face) and have your child hold the creation up to their own face.
