This fun hanging wall pocket is just made from a paper plate. Elementary school age children can decorate one for Mom with flowers or even paint their own original artwork on the outside.
2 plain paper plates
A hole punch
Yarn, twine, or other thick thread
Thick needle (optional)
Crayons, paint, or markers
Directions for the project-Cut one paper plate in half. Punch holes in even spaces along the straight edge, about 1 inch apart (make sure you don’t punch near the circular part yet). Put the plates together, with the fronts together, forming a pocket. While holding them together, punch holes around the edges about 1 inch apart. It may help to use clothes pins to hold the 2 plates together. Have the child “sew” up all the edges with yarn, string, or twine. Older children can use an upholstery needle. For younger ones, a bit of nail polish put on the end of the string (let it dry first) can act like a needle. Make a hole for hanging the wall pocket on the wall. Decorate the wall pocket with crayons, markers, or paint
