10 Craft Ideas To Do With John Deere Coloring Pages
Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Party Decorations
For the John Deere enthusiast in your life, if you’re throwing them a party and you need decorations on the cheap, you can use my illustrations.
From simply coloring in and hanging up the pictures on the wall to coloring in individual tractors and harvesters and cutting those out, there are many ways you can use my pictures.
One idea is to use the individual tractors as name cards for your dining table; another is to create a mobile that you can hang from a wall or ceiling.
Use your imagination or look online for specific ideas of how you can use my John Deere illustrations to decorate.
Your kids can create adorable dioramas using my John Deere pictures, scenes that recreate the bucolic simplicity of farm life.
You’ll need a large cardboard box that’s deep; you’ll turn it on its side so the opening faces out.
Your kids will then color in and cut out whichever John Deere machines they want to use.
They can place down green construction paper for grass and blue paper for the sky, and they can use different colors to create trees, hay bales, and even animals like cows and horses.
8. Button Tractors
For this craft, you will need lots of green buttons, preferably smaller (but in many different sizes), as well as black and yellow.
Using one of my John Deere pictures, you’re going to start placing and gluing down the buttons, overlapping them slightly as you go.
Use green for the body of the tractor, black for the outside of the wheels, and yellow for the inside of the wheels.
You might want to try placing the buttons down before you start gluing them down – that way, you can get an idea of how it looks.
7. Dad’s/Grandpa’s Other Deeres Pictures
For this craft, you will need construction paper in whatever color you like – I recommend black or yellow – as well as pictures of your little ones.
The kids will color in and cut out the tractors they want to use and paste them onto the construction paper.
Then they’ll write “Dad’s/Grandpa’s Other Deeres” in the blank space near the top.
Cut the pictures down into ovals and paste them below the words. You have an adorable poster that you can present to the men in your life on Father’s Day or birthdays!
6. Tissue Box Covers
To make tissue box covers, you will need green, yellow, and/or black construction paper; you can use this to cover the tissue box in whatever arrangement you like.
You’ll then print out and have your kids color in and cut out the John Deere equipment they want to use (they can do multiples – one for each side, or two sides, etc.).
They’ll paste the cut-outs to the sides of the tissue box, making sure the glue goes all the way to the edge so that the cut-outs lie totally flat.
5. Mini-Fact Booklets
The story of John Deere is so interesting, and there are so many related facts that will fill your kids with wonder about the company.
So why not have them create mini-fact booklets about John Deere – it’ll give them a chance to flex both their academic and creative brains.
Have them pick three or four pictures to color in and look up John Deere facts online. They’ll write directly on the pages.
They can even bind the pages by three-hole punching through and connecting with O-rings.
4. Play Props
For preschoolers and kindergarteners, there is nothing better than stoking their imagination with a few toys and time to play.
They can create play props out of my John Deere pictures by coloring in different machines and cutting them out.
Then they can reinforce the machines with construction paper or cardstock. They’ll have the perfect vehicles for free play, especially when paired with a farm play rug.
You can create adorable, handmade valentines crafted using my John Deere illustrations.
Have your kids color in and cut out the farm equipment they want to use; paste it onto a piece of construction paper folded in half.
Include a cute message, like, “You’ll always be Deere to me!”
2. Home Sweet Farm Poster
For a chic farmhouse home, you can create your own DIY décor – and it costs next to nothing.
For example, you can cut down a piece of black construction paper to be about an inch shorter all the way around and paste it onto a piece of green construction paper (so the green is a frame).
Then color in and cut out a John Deere tractor and paste it about two-thirds of the way down.
Then, stencil, freehand, or even cut out letters that spell “Home Sweet Farm.”
As an added touch, you can shrink down the John Deere Logo and paste it near the top or the bottom border.
1. John Deere Wreath
To make a John Deere wreath, you can find most of the items at your local dollar store: a wreath frame, ribbon, burlap, etc.
You’ll start by looping the ribbon and burlap over and under the wreath frame, making loops for 3D texture, and pushing the burlap and ribbon as closely together as possible.
When you’re done doing that, you will color in and cut out the John Deere tractor of your choice (you might have to resize it a bit).
Mod-Podge it into a wooden craft circle and wait for it to dry.
Once it’s ready, hot glue a piece of twine to the back and then tie the other end from the wreath frame.
