A few weeks ago while we were camping I pulled out our camper craft kit and some paper plates and the kids and I made this adorable Clothespin Paper Plate Hedgehog Kids Craft! They were so proud of the end result and I love that this isn’t a typical paper plate craft! It is so simple to make and kids will love being able to take a regular old paper plate and turn it into something so totally different. Read on to learn how we made it!
