10 Craft Ideas to do With Knight Coloring Pages
Knights are magical and mystical to children of all ages.
If those finished coloring pages are accumulating, try these easy, affordable crafts.
1. Colorful Jousting Headgear
To make this unique craft, start with a large piece of poster board, and let the youngster laminate it with the finished coloring pages.
The pages can be left intact, or the poster board can be decorated decal-style.
When finished, it should be bent into a long triangle that will easily slip over the child’s head. The crease should be in the front.
A rectangle should be cut across the front at eye level, and it will look just like a knight’s helmet!
2. Classroom Sword Fight
This outstanding classroom activity begins with each child tracing and cutting out a knight’s sword. It can be as big or small as they choose.
Next, when the students have finished one or more coloring pages, the knights should be cut out and used to laminate the swords.
Handles are easily made from big pipe cleaners, and colorful streamers can be hung from them to make the swords extra fancy. Let the sword fights begin!
3. A Knight in the Forest
All you need for this enjoyable craft is a piece of styrofoam, some pipe cleaners and craft pom-poms, and some popsicle sticks.
Using brown pipe cleaners and green pom-poms or green pieces of tissue paper, have the youngster fashion some “trees.”
These can be pushed into an ordinary styrofoam square to create a forest. When the knight is colored and cut out, he can be glued to a popsicle stick.
The youngster can then place the knight wherever he or she chooses for a fun centerpiece.
4. A Comical Versatile Puppet
To make this funny puppet, have the youngster color a full knight and cut out all the main parts separately.
These should be reassembled loosely with paper fasteners, and the arms and legs reinforced with toothpicks. The latter can be taped lengthwise on the back side.
A cross made from two popsicle sticks is a perfect handle, and string attached from the ends of the sticks to the knight’s arms and legs will complete this funny, movable puppet.
5. Create a Unique Knight’s Shield
Start this craft by having each child trace and cut out a shield from ordinary cardboard.
An arm handle is easily made by cutting two strips of cardboard and taping them to the back in a “U” shape.
When one or more knight figures are colored and cut out, they should be glued to the front of the shield, and the surrounding area decorated however the child prefers.
A coat of acrylic spray keeps the shield nice for a long time!
6. Classroom Roundtable
This engaging classroom activity is perfect for any age child. Have the youngsters draw a large oval on a giant piece of poster or craft paper.
Next, have them color and cut out their knights, embellishing them as they please.
The knights can then be glued to the outer edges of the oval, and the children can all sign their names with bright markers on the inside for an outstanding classroom poster.
7. Innovative Wall Art
This super-fun activity is a big hit with all youngsters and begins with the child tracing and cutting out six swords from poster board in a favorite color.
The swords’ points should be stapled together in the center to create a pinwheel effect.
Then, a knight on a horse should be colored, cut out, and attached to the center of the “pinwheel” for some colorful and unusual wall art.
8. A Castle for the Knight
This engaging classroom activity begins with the youngsters working together to create a “castle.”
This can be done with an empty coffee can, some small cardboard boxes, and a few empty cardboard rolls. The key is making lots of windows, doors, and towers.
Once the coloring pages are complete and the knights cut out, they can be strategically placed on and around the structure.
Don’t forget to add a few craft flags to the top, and this medieval castle can be displayed anywhere.
9. Design a “Knight Light”
To make this fun “knight light,” give the child an ordinary night light from any discount store.
When the youngster has finished coloring, the knight should be cut out and sealed in contact paper or glassine.
Then, using invisible glue, the cutout should be attached to the nightlight’s front shield, making sure not to paste over the switch.
The tiny bulb won’t get warm enough to damage the cutout, and your youngster can enjoy an unusual night light.
10. Guarding the Castle
To make this colorful Keep Out sign, begin with a piece of gray poster board on which the child can sketch stones to depict a castle wall.
A big door can be cut from black construction paper and glued to the front of the castle.
When the knight is colored and cut out, he can be pasted to the castle’s front side near the door as if he is on guard.
“Keep Out” can be written in bright-colored puffy paint for a fun sign.
