Whether for a farmyard project, or a home-made Nativity scene, this simple lolly stick stable takes a bit of patience to make but is well worth the effort.

Paper Plate Horse

Paper Plate Horse

Paper plate crafts are always popular, but we must warn you that this paper plate horse is slightly trickier than most of the paper plate crafts at Activity Village! Younger children will need help drawing and cutting the head and leg shapes, and perhaps with some of the sticking too.
