Paper Plate Hedgehog Craft

What you need:

  • 1 paper plate
  • fall leaves
  • light brown paint
  • paintbrush
  • googly eyes
  • black marker
  • scissors
  • glue (white school glue or glue gun – you can get a low temp one for younger kids)

How to make it:

Pain the paper plate brown. Let the paint dry completely.


Cut it in half.


Glue the halves together – most paper plates will will allow for the hedgehog to stand on it’s own if you glue the halves together.


Mark the head area (to keep it leaf-free). Apply a generous amount of glue and start sticking on leaves. Let each layer of leaves set for a bit. Once you are happy with how your paper plate hedgehog craft looks stick on two googly eyes and draw a nose and mouth. Isn’t this fellow adorable=
