Back 2 School Bus Craft
To create your own school bus, you’ll need to first gather up a few basic supplies:
Printable Template (found at the end of this post)
After you’ve gathered up all of your supplies you can print each page of the bus template out on it’s corresponding color. After printing, carefully cut out all of your bus pieces. Alternatively, you could print each template page onto regular printer paper, cut out your pieces, and then trace them onto the construction paper. If you go that route, you can simply add the school bus details on the side using a sharpie, black marker, or something similar.
Using a glue stick or white craft glue, glue each of the pieces onto the your bus. Use the photos below as a guide, starting with the long grey strip at the bottom of the bus template and positioning the yellow half circles as shown.
Next, create your wheels by layering the black circles over the yellow half circles, as seen below, then centering the gray circles over the black ones.
After you’re done with the wheels, move on to the windows placing each one as shown below.
Finally, glue on the remainder of the pieces, adding the lights and stop sign to your bus.
Let the glue dry and you’re done!
These would make super cute additions to bulletin boards. And to make this craft more fun and personal, cut out photos of your kids or favorite characters and glue them in the windows.
