Make this hanging wall pocket from a paper plate. This is a great project for elementary school age children who want to organize their room!
- 2 plain paper plates
- A hole punch
- Yarn, twine, or other thick thread
- Crayons, paint, or markers
- Optional – Stickers
- Optional – Thick needle
Cut one paper plate in half. Punch holes along the straight edge, about 1 inch apart (don’t punch near the circular part yet).
Put the plates together, the fronts together, forming a pocket. While holding them together, punch holes around the edges about 1 inch apart.
It may help to use clothes pins to hold the 2 plates together.
Have the child ‘sew’ up all the edges with yarn, string, or twine. Older children can use an upholstery needle. For younger ones, a bit of nail polish put on the end of the string (let it dry first) will act like a needle.
Make a hole for hanging the wall pocket on the wall. Decorate the wall pocket with crayons, markers, or paint.
