Toddler Pouch

Toddlers love to collect things in their pockets. Your child will enjoy wearing this little pouch and using it to store all her interesting discoveries.

Materials
  • 2 paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Hole punch
  • Yarn or ribbon

Directions

  1. Cut one paper plate in half.
  2. Staple one half to the second paper plate to form a pouch.
  3. Punch two holes in the top of the full paper plate, then tie a short length of yarn or ribbon from one hole to the next to form a handle.
  4. Because of the danger of strangulation, please make sure that the yarn or ribbon is not long enough to go over your child?s head.
  5. Decorate it with crayons, markers, or stickers.
  6. Hang the pouch from your child's belt or let her carry it around with her.
