This is one of our favorite African-themed projects. We love how they all turn out so differently! They are made using the outer rim of a large paper plate and they are inspired by the beaded necklaces of the Samburu Tribe.
Supplies: paper plates, paint, paint brushes, and scissors
Step one: Cut a “v” shape out of the top of the plate. Then cut along the inside circle.
Step two: Paint the plate in bright and fun African colors and designs.
Step three: Wear the necklace proudly! Maybe dance to some African music!
