Obama Symbol Paper Plate



Help your child join in the excitement and celebration of our new President with this easy and cheap President's Day craft idea.

obama plate


  • Paper Plate
  • A copy or pattern of the Obama "O" logo
  • Acrylic paint in red, white, and blue
  • paintbrush


  1. Draw the Obama "o" pattern on the paper plate. The middle part of the plate should become the white of the O inside the outer ridge.
  2. Paint the top portion of the outer ridge blue and the horizontal stripes red and white like the American flag.
  3. Allow to dry completely. Have your child learn a few facts about President Obama. Discuss with them the historical importance of his election to office.

Keep out of politics or take my name off your list.


Great Idea. It'll transfer nicely to my toilet seat cover.

Sigh...I see even here on a crafting site, the teeth-gnashing, hair-pulling hysterical types have to try to ruin it for everyone. I completely understand not liking a president, I couldn't stand President Bush but seriously, there are MANY more important things to get upset over. Really!


O, that's an "O"? I thought it was a big ZERO. I'm ALL for American Pride, Stars and Stripes, Red, White and Blue...THIS however, with it's "personal political" bent is absolutely disgusting. I am yet another that would NEVER do or share this "craft" with a child or a classroom.


This is such an important emblem due to President Obama just being the first Black American President. My grandchildren are learning so much about the importance of this phenomenon in school. And will celebrate President's day at school.

It's an abomination that this is even on here! I think most of us don't expect a political agenda to to be pushed at us when looking at a craft site. I also would never share this with my child.


It's an abomination that this is even on this craft site! Pushing a political agenda doesn't belong here. I would never share this with my child or any others.


Please stick to straight crafting, apolitical, non agenda oriented. I don't think a president who lies and pushes his own agenda deserves special treatment. Keep the crafts patriotic not political. Thank you. I would never make this nor share it with children.


Oh pleezzze !!!!! What do we have to honor the emblem he chose?

I haven't made it, will NEVER make it, only use would be for target practice, I thought this was a site for crafts, NOT pushing a political agenda.
