Summer Craft: Family Faces Totem Pole

Family Faces Totem Pole

Like a friendly welcome sign, these smiling paper plates offer greetings to fellow campers and help kids remember whose tent is whose.


  • Paper plates
  • Markers
  • Natural materials
  • White glue
  • Tape
  • Large stick


  1. To craft your own totem pole, have each family member create a self-portrait on a plate using markers, natural materials, and white glue. When the glue dries, tape the plates to a large stick and set the totem pole in the ground beside your tent.
