I was actually searching for a paper-plate based weaving activity when a tutorial for these larger-than-life slices of watermelon, apple and lemon caught our 5 year-old’s eye. They are bright, cheerful and easy to make, all you need is plain paper plates, scissors, glue, scraps of coloured paper and some paint.
The original tutorial suggested ready-mixed paint but we were happy to make do with our poster paint tins. We used sugar paper and felt tip pens for the various peels/segments/pips.
Here is the original tutorial with more detailed photos of how to make the layers, over at Crafts By Amanda.
And the weaving will have to wait for another day. 🙂
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
