How to Make a Paper Plate Christmas Ornament Craft for Preschool

Step 1.

First, paint or color the paper plate. Let the paint dry.

We used a metallic acrylic paint. The paint is not washable so if that is a concern, you will want to have the kids wear aprons and roll up their sleeves.

Step 2.

Next, glue the plastic gems to the paper plate. You can place them randomly or make a pattern. Pattern making is a math skill.
