10 Craft Ideas To Do With Fairy Tale Coloring Pages
All kids love fairy tales and coloring pages featuring these famous stories.
Here are some interesting, inexpensive crafts to do if those pages have piled up.
1. A 3D Jack and the Beanstalk Collage
Jack and the Beanstalk is an enduring fairytale favorite, and all children enjoy this craft.
Give each youngster several Jack and the Beanstalk coloring pages to color and cut out.
Next, have them laminate several empty paper towel cardboards with green construction paper, adding leaves cut from the same type of paper.
The cutouts of Jack can be glued to the “beanstalks,” and the cardboard pushed down into a styrofoam block for a unique and interesting centerpiece.
2. The Three Little Pigs Come to Life
To make this adorable desktop ornament, have the youngster color the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, cutting each of the characters out when they’re finished.
The wolf should be laminated to an empty paper towel cardboard, cut down to about two-thirds.
Wiggle eyes and teeth, made from plain white paper, can be added to embellish the wolf’s scary face.
The three little pig cutouts should be glued to empty bathroom tissue cardboard, and these can be embellished as well for a hilarious desktop display.
3. Cinderella’s Coach
If your child’s favorite fairy tale is Cinderella, this craft is perfect.
An ordinary white paper plate can be turned into a coach by cutting a large oval in the middle and framing it with “curtains” made from red paper streamers.
The Cinderella cutout can be placed inside, and pipe cleaners can be used to fashion fun, spiral-shaped wheels underneath the coach.
The entire creation can then be glued to a blue or black piece of poster board and decorated with glitter stars to light Cinderella’s way to the ball!
4. Rapunzel Lets Down Her Hair
This great fairy tale craft is based on Rapunzel and is surprisingly easy to make.
The child should begin by drawing a castle, adding a makeshift terrace designed from one-half of an ordinary paper cup, cut vertically.
A brick or stone pattern can be drawn on the cup’s surface. When Rapunzel is colored and cut out, she can be positioned behind the wall of the “terrace.”
A long piece of black or yellow yarn serves as the hair, which can be dangled down over the terrace for adorable 3D art.
5. The Seven Dwarves Play Ring Toss
This fun craft is perfect as a classroom activity and quickly turns into a game.
Have the children color and cut out the seven dwarves, making as many of these as desired.
They should be laminated onto empty bathroom tissue cardboard, with cone-shaped hats made from bright construction paper added to the tops.
Homemade pipe cleaner rings can be used to turn this craft into a ring toss game, and the youngsters can see how many of the dwarves’ hats they can capture with their rings.
6. Where’s the Prince?
All youngsters know the story of the frog turning into a prince after a kiss, and here is a comical craft based on that theme.
Have the child color and cut out a frog from any fairy tale page featuring this theme.
The frog should then be given a crown, which can be made from yellow construction paper or tin foil.
The youngster can use puffy red paint to put “lipstick marks” all over the frog’s grinning face and write, “Where’s the Prince?” for hilarious, framable art.
7. Magic Lamp Art
For this easy and engaging craft, start with a coloring page featuring an Aladdin’s lamp.
Once the lamps are colored, they should be cut out and glued to a square piece of poster board in the child’s favorite color.
Next, using tufts of crêpe paper, pom-poms, or craft lace, the youngsters can create a colorful swirl coming from the lamp, leaving a blank spot inside.
With a marker or puffy paint, they can then write their three wishes in the blank area for a cute and original poster.
8. King of the Castle
Any fairy tale coloring page featuring a king is perfect for this craft.
Once the king is colored, the character should be carefully cut out and wrapped around a bathroom tissue cardboard.
Using thinly cut strips of construction paper, curled at the end, the youngster can add “hair” and a funny, curling beard.
A pom-pom for a nose, wiggle eyes, and a foil crown complete this adorable desktop ornament that can be used to store pens, pencils, or crayons.
9. Make a Unique Princess Hat
The surprisingly simple craft requires only a sheet of poster board, the coloring page, and some paper streamers.
Begin by having the youngster trim and fold a posterboard into a long, pointy hat, like those worn by princesses in fairy tales.
Once the child has colored several pages, they can be used to laminate the hat and colorful paper streamers glued to their peak.
Your child now has a fun princess hat to wear anywhere!
10. Build a Fairy Tale Castle
For this unique craft, start with a small, ordinary cardboard box and several empty paper towel and toilet tissue cardboards.
All these items should be laminated with the finished fairy tale coloring pages and the cardboard “towers” glued around the circumference of the box at various places.
One should be placed on the “roof” of the box, as the castle’s tower. Adding some craft flags, paper streamers, and other embellishments makes this fairy tale castle come to life!
