Mushrooms! We love mushrooms! Today we are going to make a footprint paper plate mushroom πŸ˜€

Footprint paper plate mushroom

Cut a paper plate to the shape of a mushroom top

Paint the paper plate red.

While waiting for the paper plate to dry, paint your foot white or brown.. πŸ˜€

Stamp your painted foot on a piece of coloured construction paper.

Back to the paper plate. Paint a coat of diluted PVA glue all over the plate. This acts as an adhesive to hold the cotton later on and also as a varnish. Read here to learn more about varnishing using PVA glue.

Paste cotton balls

Spread the remaining PVA glue at the back of the paper plate

Paste it onto the footprint and the mushroom is done! Served with a bowl of freshly cooked mushroom soup, YUMMY! πŸ˜€
