    Paper Plate Lizard Craft

    Paper plates are a cheap and easy medium when crafting with little ones. My daughter and I especially love making all sorts of animals with paper plates. During our preschool homeschool lesson on reptiles, my daughter and I created a paper plate lizard.


    • Paper plate
    • Toilet paper roll
    • Green and yellow paint
    • Red construction paper
    • Paintbrush
    • Scissors
    • Glue


    1. Cut the toilet paper roll into two one-inch sections.
    2. Paint the bottom of the paper plate and the toilet paper roll sections green.
    3. Paint the top of the paper plate yellow.
    4. Fold the paper plate in half.
    5. Glue the toilet paper rolls on top of the paper plate to form eyes.
    6. Cut a wiggly tongue from the red construction paper.
    7. Glue the red tongue in the middle of the bottom of the inside of the fold paper plate.
