Collector's Plates

This craft is easy to do and fun to make. Keep those little ones busy making these easy decorations for their tree.

What you'll need:

    * Old magazines
    * Scissors
    * Paper plate, cardboard, wood circle, plastic/play plates
    * Silver or Gold string
    * Glue

How to make it:

   1. Cut out pictures of collector's plates found in many magazines.
   2. Glue these on a paper plate, cardboard, small lightweight wood circle, and plastic/play plates cut to the size of the picture.
   3. Glue on a silver or gold looped string for a hanger.


Tacky Glue is better for crafts than hot glue, which boys can easily get hurt using; it's thicker and tackier than Elmer's Glue and dries quickly.
