  1. Paint the Paper Plate with orange washable paint. Allow to dry.
  2. Cut out eyes, nose, mouth and stem from Black Paper, and glue in appropriate places.
Tips for Teachers:
  • Before children begin their color crafts, have them brainstorm as many orange objects as they can. Provide them with orange crayons, and allow them to decorate one side of the paper plate by drawing orange things. Then turn over the plate and begin painting.
  • Besides for being a great educational tool in teaching colors, the above idea can also be a practical way to occupy the children while the teacher gets the rest of the supplies  ready for the craft.
