Euro 2016 paper plate football craft for kids

paper plate football craft for kids

My 6 year old has been attending an after school football club this year which he loves. I have to admit I’m pretty clueless about most sports but will all this chatter about Euro ’16 I thought it was about time we had a go at crafting our own football.

We used a white paper plate, black card, hexagon template, scissors and Glu Dots.

The first step was to cut out our hexagons. I love sewing so we used a plastic hexagon template, the kind used in English Paper Piecing. My 4 year old drew round this with a pencil.

Then she carefully cut each hexagon out.

Then it was time to stick the black hexagons onto our paper plate football. We used Glu Dots as these are great for crafting with and my 4 year old is able to use them independently.

She placed each hexagon on her football until she was happy with how it looked. What do you think? Now we’re all ready for the Euro 2016 with our football craft for kids!
