10 Craft Ideas To Do With Dancing Coloring Pages
Coloring dancing figures is fun and exciting for all kids, but don’t let those finished pages go to waste.
Try these top ten inexpensive crafts to preserve the youngster’s hard work.
1. Colorful Dancing Figures
This fun craft is easy and affordable. Once the youngster has colored a dancing figure, it should be glued to stiff cardboard and cut out.
Next, give the child one-half of an ordinary white paper plate and a handful of craft pom-poms in various colors.
The child can glue these to the paper plate in any preferred design and staple the straight edge of the plate to the cutout at waist level.
This creates a colorful skirt that makes the dancing character come to life!
2. An Adorable Dancing Centerpiece
To start this cute craft, the dancer should be colored, glued to cardboard, and cut out, with a craft stick glued to the back of the cutout.
Next, turn a cupcake wrapper upside down, and cut a small slit through which to push the craft stick.
The cupcake wrapper looks like a fancy dancing skirt, and the craft stick can be pushed into a small square of styrofoam for an adorable centerpiece.
3. A Sparkling Classroom Ornament
This craft will make any classroom sparkle, and it’s simple and easy to complete. Have each youngster color a dancer–or a dancing couple–and cut the figures out.
Pages featuring dancers with one or both hands over their heads are perfect for this craft.
Then, give each child a twisty or pipe cleaner to fasten to their cutouts, and provide a long string of silver or gold garland.
The dancers can be attached to the garland in a long row for a sparkling, glamorous classroom decoration.
4. 3D Dance Performance
Start this craft by having the youngster select a piece of construction paper in their favorite color.
The dancer should then be colored, cut out, and glued to the construction paper background.
Small tufts of colored tissue paper can be used to create a 3D outfit for the dancer. The pieces are easy to attach using invisible glue.
Finally, pipe cleaners are perfect for creating 3D arms and legs, and the youngster can write his or her name at the bottom in puffy paint for framable, textured artwork.
5. Dancing Hearts
Using red posterboard, have the youngster cut out a heart, making a one-inch slit in its center.
When the dancing figure is colored and cut out, it should be slid down through the slit, creating the illusion of dancing inside the heart.
Small craft sticks or fancy toothpicks should then be attached as arms and legs, and a piece of yarn or embroidery thread will turn this craft into a hanging ornament.
Simply attach the ends to the dancer’s “arms” and hang this cute artwork anywhere!
6. Desktop Dancers
Begin this engaging classroom craft by giving each child the coloring page of his or her choice and an empty bathroom tissue cardboard.
Once the dancing figure is colored and cut out, it should be pasted to the front of the cardboard.
Using felt, tissue paper, colored netting, or lace, let the youngsters make a creative outfit for their dancers, gluing the pieces to the cardboard with Krazy glue.
To make it extra fun, tiny paper hats or yarn for hair can be added to these adorable desktop ornaments.
7. Make a Unique Greeting Card
To create a beautiful card, the child should color and cut out a full-length dancing figure.
A piece of construction paper should be folded in half to serve as the card, and the cutout folded into the crease so that when the card opens, the figure does too.
With a separate paper, have the youngster make a simple fan.
The ends should be glued to either side of the card, inside, so that when opened, the “fan” expands to look like the dancer’s skirt! “Come Dance With Me” can be written inside!
8. A Dancing Pinwheel
This enjoyable classroom craft doesn’t require anything fancy. The youngster should glue their finished coloring pages to thin cardboard and carefully cut them out.
Glitter, craft gems, and puffy paint should be used to embellish various parts of the cutouts.
Using Krazy glue, glue the cutouts together at the bottom, pinwheel style, for a sparkling classroom decoration.
9. Star of the Show
For this fun craft, give each youngster a piece of yellow poster board with which to trace and cut out a large star.
Next, let them choose coloring pages they can embellish to resemble themselves.
They can use yarn for hair, add wiggle eyes, tiny paper hats, or even make “jewelry” with tiny craft gems.
Once the figure is complete, it can be cut from the page and glued to the center of the yellow star. With puffy paint, the youngsters can add their name and “Star of the Show.”
10. Fancy Ballerina Figurine
If your child wants to color a ballerina page, this craft is perfect. Once the figure is colored and cut out, it should be glued to a large craft stick.
Two clothespins can be clipped to the cutout to create legs that will allow it to stand on its own.
Then, tissue paper or craft lace can be added to create a puffy ballerina skirt, and your child has an adorable desktop ornament.
