This sunny paper plate craft will brighten up your day with its beaming smile and warming rays.

You can’t go wrong with this simple but effective craft. All you need is a paper plate, sugar paper, enough felt tips to draw on a happy face and you’re laughing.

If you can’t get hold of a coloured paper plate just get the kids to paint one, then let them have fun creating their own sunny face with a toothy grin, arching eyebrows or even a moustache – it’s up to them.

Stick their paper-plate sun on the fridge or on a beanpole in the garden for a smile a day.
