It’s back to school season! 😱 While everyone is prepping with fresh supplies, backpacks and new kicks, I’m over here trying to remind my preschooler how to write her name with something other than sidewalk chalk. This paper plate pizza craft is a fun and easy way to brush up on a few basic motor skills.
I am sure everyone is in agreeance when I say this summer flew by! I am a mixed bag of emotions about the kids heading back to school and daycare. While I am excited for them to get back to a routine and step outside of their comfort zones, I will miss them and of course worry about them.
On top of keeping the kids busy for at least 5 minutes 😜, these simple paper plate pizzas will help your little one practice their painting, cutting, and gluing skills. Cutting and using scissors is one skill I am guilty of not encouraging enough. Having proper kid scissors is important! Nothing is more frustrating for a preschooler than trying to learn this skill with scissors that are too big, flimsy, or old.
Also, this project is super versatile! Let the kids pick their favorite toppings and practice more difficult vegetable shapes such as mushrooms or anchovies. This could also easily translate into different foods such as tacos or a salad!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Paint sauce on paper plate. Let dry.
2. Cut toppings from construction paper.
3. Glue toppings to paper plate. Let dry.
🎉🍕 ENJOY! 🍕🎉
