Pot of Gold Paper Plate Lacing
With this adorable rainbow activity, you can help your toddler develop their fine motor abilities. When a child engages in an activity like this, they typically become extraordinarily focused and frequently do not want to be disturbed.
However, because it calls for integrating more than one of the five basic senses, this acceptable motor activity requires their full attention.
- A paper plate
- Rainbow-colored yarn
- A whole punch
- Markers in black and green
- Pony beads in yellow
How to Create:
- Fold the paper plate in half. Trace the ridged border on most paper plates to create the inside circle.
- The pot of gold is a simple circle with a tall, thin rectangle on top.
- Any pot shape will suffice if the top rim is wide enough to create six-hole punches.
- Use scissors to cut out the shape. Then make six holes—one for each rainbow color—along the top of the pot of gold.
- Ensure the holes are equally spaced as you punch them throughout the plate's inner circumference.
- Color the bottom of the paper plate green for the grass and the bottom of the pot of gold black.
- Start by threading through the first pot of gold whole punch with the red yarn.
- Sporadically weave the yarn through the next hole to fill the pot with gold and add a yellow pony bead.
- Use this method with every color in the rainbow; the top of the pot of gold will have a hole for each one.
- With a knot, fasten each end on the back. Your gold pot at the end of the rainbow is completed. This easy st Patrick's Day craft for toddlers is a great craft that toddlers can make to honor St. Patrick's Day!
