Watercolor Paper Plate Crown Activity
This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting Tricky Toddlers.
One of the best things about the Easter season is how much focus is given to the life and character of Jesus. It’s a perfect time to teach children about who Jesus is, what He has done, and what He continues to do. This week we are making a paper plate crown to remind us of one big idea:
Jesus is King
Jesus is king of the world, king of our hearts, and king of all things. What an amazing truth to teach to our children!
Psalm 102:12 But you, O LORD, are enthroned forever.
Lately I have been reminded of how much we as parents need support in teaching our children God’s word. I feel the weight of it often, and deeply know my shortcomings. We are blessed to have a community who teach and encourage our children along side of us. We hope that through our materials and online community you can find additional support as you teach your children.

Paper Plate Craft
What you’ll need:
- Paper plate
- Using watercolors, paint the non-glossy side of the paper plate.
- Once it dries, fold the plate in half and cut three slits through the plate (see image below).
- Unfold the plate and bend the points upwards to look like a crown.
We would love to see how your child’s crowns turned out! Find us on Facebook and post some pictures! Facebook Tricky Toddlers Community>
