Paper Plate Mania, part of the "Mania" Craft series of books, published by Children's Press(2002), gives directions for a dozen easy and fun craft projects, using ordinary paper plates. Make a snake, a butterfly, or an owl. All of the projects shown in the book were made using regular-sized, white paper plates. Customize your creations by using different sizes or colors of plates. Some of the designs can be made using foam plates, as well.
