Paper Plate Pirate Craft  For Kids [Free Template]

Summer is the perfect time to spend some quality time crafting! And if you’re searching for a more boyish craft, this paper plate pirate craft is perfect.

We make lots of paper plate crafts around here, so when we started a pirate theme, we knew we needed to add this easy pirate craft to the list.


– White paper plate – Skin colored paint – Colored cardstock (in black, red/pink, hair color) – White cardstock – Markers (black and pink) – Glue stick – Tape – Scissors – Pirate template

Download the paper plate pirate template, print and cut out the pieces.

Begin by painting the paper plate in your choice of skin-colored shades. Let it dry completely.

Once the paper plate is completely dry, glue the eyes to each side of the plate, like in the pictures.

We used a black marker to outline the eyes because we think it gives it a more finished look.
