George Washington Preschool Craft

Cut out the center of the paper plate and flip it so the back is facing the top. Cut two tear drop-shaped pieces of paper from cardstock paper, about 6 inches long and 2 inches wide. Glue the tear drops to the bottom sides of the plate to make the wig shape. Gently pull the cotton balls apart and glue them all over the paper plate and the tear drops, leaving an opening at the bottom for a chin. Tape the jumbo craft stick to the back of the paper plate. Once the glue is dry, glue a ribbon bow to George Washington’s hair. During the time, many men wore bows in their hair and wigs as well as women.
