Paper Plate Clowns – I love a good “theme” and the circus theme is one of my favorites. I recently had a great time making circus crafts and dressing up with the kids. Today I’m sharing free tutorials and printable templates.
One of my favorite circus acts is the clown puppet I make. Print out the card template (found here ), color and cut out the clown, add eyes and a button nose (with glue) and stick a craft stick on the back. Isn’t that cute?

I also made a cute elephant statue. Print out the template (found here ) on card stock, cut it out (including the nose hole), glue on some eyes, and stick a craft stick on the back. Being able to use a child’s finger as a forefinger makes this circus act even more special!

It’s also easy to turn little girls into clowns with simple paper plate clown collars. All you have to do is cut a paper plate in the middle, paint it, and cut a hole in the back. I love how easy and inexpensive this craft is and I guarantee your kids will love it too!
These circus crafts are perfect for an afternoon of crafts, but they’re also great activities for a circus party! I hope you and your little ones will love this fun circus craft as much as we do.

The best part about this craft is that it’s easy for little hands to make. Fine motor skills are required to arrange pom poms on a paper plate. It’s a fuss-free craft that lets your kids take creative reigns.
Let the children name their clowns. The more pom poms the better. If you don’t have pom poms, why not use pipe cleaners for curly clown hair?
