With just a few supplies, kids can turn paper plates into fun fans at your family summer barbecue. The watermelon slice fan is a fun painting project, the ladybug fan is easy painting and involves lots of paper cutting and the baseball fan is the simplest fan for kids who don't have the patience for a more involved craft.
For the watermelon fan, cut a paper plate in half. Paint the inner circle of one half with red poster paint and let dry.
Use the tip of the paintbrush handle to paint black dots on the red part of the plate.
Paint the outer rim and 1 side of an ice pop stick with green paint.
For the ladybug fan, paint a paper plate and 1 side of an ice pop stick with red poster paint. Let the plate and ice pop stick dry.
Cut 4 large circles, 1 oval, 1 triangle with a rounded edge and 2 very small circles out of black construction paper and then cut 2 large circles out of white paper. Use a glue stick to attach the circles to the red plate.
For the baseball fan, use the tip of the paintbrush handle to paint red dots on a plate in the curved lines of a baseball seam.
Use craft glue to attach the green ice pop stick to the watermelon, the red ice pop stick to the ladybug and the plain ice pop stick to the baseball.
