The Learning Sanctuary

Paper plate creations!

This month we made our own furry friends! A lamb and a bee were our creations, but there are endless creatures to be made! This makes a great sensory activity as well as building fine motor skills.


  • Paper plates
  • Cotton wool balls
  • Pencils, crayons, permanent markers
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Glue stick



  1. Place one paper plate face down
  2. Grab your glue stick and add as much glue as you like
  3. Stick cotton wool balls in the desired area
  4. Cut out a face and ears for your furry friend and glue onto the cotton ball covered plate
  5. Glue on googly eyes and we added pipe cleaners for the legs and mouth
