Gettin' Crafty Post #6: Paper Pizzas

For an introduction to this new series of Gettin' Crafty posts, visit Post #1.

II. Prep 
Aside from printing the templates and making a sign indicating what the craft was for the day, there was no prep time involved in this craft aside from setting out the materials.

III. Instructions
For this one, the kids just color their pizza and toppings, cut them out, and glue the toppings to the pizza. I was surprised by how much they loved the concept, and saw kids from preschool through about second grade step in to participate. This craft could also be adapted for toddlers, if you print out the colored template, and cut the pieces out for them ahead of time.
