1. Use a hole punch to punch a hole at the top of the plate. Help your child to thread a long piece of yarn through the hole. Tie to create a long loop from which the plate can hang.

2. Thin glue with a little water and let your child paint on the plate with a paintbrush. Sprinkle glitter and/or place collage materials on the glue.

3. Dry for several hours. Hold the plate up to the light for your child to observe. Hang the plate in a window or where light can shine through it.
