You can create numerous art projects with paper plates! Paper plate crafts are extremely easy and fun for kids. My son and I loved making the projects shown below.

For the snake project, we first used bingo daubers to create the spots on the snake. Then we cut a coil shape and added the eyes and lips at the end.
