Uncle Sam Paper Plate Craft

With both Memorial Day and the 4th of July coming up, we’ve been into patriotic kids crafts, particularly ideas we can start as 4th of July traditions. And this Uncle Sam Paper Plate Craft certainly fits the bill! You probably have everything you need at home – paper plates, googly eyes, construction paper and felt. And if you don’t have felt, white construction paper or cotton can easily be substituted for the mustache and beard.

Patriotic Kids Craft: Uncle Sam

The thing I love about paper plate crafts is that we always have some disposable plates on hand. Even if we don’t have white ones, we can just flip the colored ones over to use the white side. Easy peasy. Make this Uncle Sam craft and hang it on your door for some patriotic flair this 4th of July!

Let’s start creating… here’s what you’ll need.
