Snowman Mobile Craft from a Paper Plate

When I first tried making this spiral snowman mobile, I used a regular piece of white paper, but it just wasn’t thick enough.  We revamped the project and used a white paper plate instead, which worked out really well. This would be a great winter or snow day craft, especially if you wanted to break out the whole package of paper plates and make this paper plate penguin, too!

    This is very clever and easy. I’ll try it this week with my multicategorical special ed class. I think the kids will love it! Thanks!
