Paper Plate Football Craft Tips

*For this craft you will need to use two standard white paper plates. To make a smaller football you can always use the smaller size as well. This one will not take as much snack inside of it to fill it up.

*For this football craft you will need paper plates, brown and white paint, scissors, a stapler, a hole punch, and two pipe cleaners.

*You will need to help your child with the stapling on this project if they are younger. Stapling can be tricky and can hurt if not done correctly.

*You will need to let the paint on the football dry completely before using it. This will make it safer to eat your snack out of. You should also not paint the inside of the football snack carrier.
