1. Have your child first paint the paper plate with color rojo. Let it dry.

2. Then once it’s dry use a hole puncher to make the holes.

3. Take your yarn and put tape on one end to make it easy for your child to slide the thread through each hole.

Optional:  Add the stem with brown paper and draw a face.

The paper plate is pretty durable so you can use them over and over again.
