With my children being 4 and 1 the difference in their crafting abilities is pretty wide. For example my eldest has mastered using scissors now but the idea of my little girl anywhere near a pair of scissors makes me very, very nervous! Though as they have got older and started to really play together they always want to make the same things as the other. With that in mind we usually leave the more difficult crafts for when my girl is napping and keep the simpler ones to do together so that no one is left out.

This cute little paper plate Christmas pudding craft was just perfect to do together! My son was able to make his independently whilst I sat nearby and my daughter was able to use it as a fun Painting and sticking craft with me doing the cutting out for her and don’t they just look adorable?!

Here’s what we used

  • Paper plates
  • Light and dark brown paints
  • Green paper
  • Red pom poms
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our paper plate Christmas pudding

Start by colouring In your Christmas pudding! Coat the paper plate in brown paint and then  help little one to make light brown splodges by either using a brush or fingerprinting.

Take the second paper plate and near the halfway line cut out the wavy shape of the icing. Glue the icing plate down matched up with the edge of the pudding plate.

Cut out two green holly leaves and glue them in place at the top of the icing.

Paper plate Christmas pudding craft for kids

Take some pom poms and glue them down in place at the centre of the leaves to make the holly berries.

Add any extra optional decorations and the adorable paper plate Christmas pudding is finished!
