Materials needed: paper plates, leaves, pipe cleaners, finger paint.
Directions: Let the children finger paint on the paper plate. When dry, cut the paper plate into a spiral. Poke holes along the edge of the plate.
Wrap the pipe cleaner around your finger and stretch. (Children will love to do this.) Wrap one end of the pipe cleaner around the end of the pipe cleaner. Poke the pipe cleaner through hole and bend. Put a string on top & hang from the ceiling.
