10 Craft Ideas To Do With Cowboy Coloring Pages
Cowboys and the Wild West intrigue children of all ages.
Here are some terrific cowboy-themed crafts that are fun, inexpensive, and perfect for any age child.
1. Create an Awesome Cowboy Hat
Using a large paper plate, cut around the center in the shape of a “U” and make a small V shape at the rounded end.
When you bend this section straight up, away from the rest of the plate, you have an instant cowboy hat that perfectly fits the child’s head.
Once the youngster decorates this hat with cutouts from the cowboy coloring pages, it will rival a store-bought hat any day!
2. Make a Funny Cowboy Gnome
Start this craft with the youngsters tracing and cutting out one of their hands. Next, have them fashion triangles from popsicle sticks using craft glue.
When their cowboy faces are colored, the faces and hats should be cut out separately.
With the hands turned upside down, the faces should be glued on top, and giant craft pom-poms added as funny noses.
Glue the hats immediately above the nose, allowing the rim to bend upward. When pasted to the triangles, the youngsters have comical cowboy gnome ornaments that can peek out from under their hats!
3. Cute Clothespin Horse and Rider
Start this unique craft by having the children draw a horse, but just the body and head. It should then be glued to stiff cardboard and trimmed.
Two clothespins create perfect legs so they can stand on their own. Add a fluffy tail made from yarn or felt.
When the youngster colors the cowboy and cuts it out, he can be added to the horse for an outstanding centerpiece!
4. Crazy Stick Horse Ornament
This hilarious craft starts with a large popsicle stick embellished with pom-poms or other craft items.
Next, have the youngster trace and cut out a horse’s head from ordinary cardboard. A fringed mane made from black construction paper is a great finishing touch.
Now, the child can color and cut out various characters from cowboy coloring pages and use them to laminate the horse for a crazy, fun, stick-horse ornament.
Make sure to add a giant wiggle eye and display this decoration anywhere for a good laugh.
5. A Serene Cowboy Scene
To make this delightful keepsake art, give the youngster a piece of plain poster paper on which to color a pretty pastoral scene.
It can be embellished with shredded tissue paper for grass, cotton balls for clouds, and a giant yellow pom-pom for the sun.
When the cowboy–and his horse–are colored and cut out, they can be glued to the background.
A “fence” can be added by pasting toothpicks or popsicle sticks to the bottom of the scene. Preserve this beautiful art in a frame for many years!
6. Fun Horseshoe Art
This engaging classroom activity begins with each student tracing and cutting out a horseshoe from poster paper, any color goes.
When the cowboy coloring pages are finished, the characters can be cut out and glued to the horseshoes.
Make holes on both sides of the horseshoes using a hole punch, and the youngsters can create a string of luck by threading their artwork together.
Display this adorable horseshoe chain anywhere in the classroom.
7. Pipe Cleaner Cowboy Art
This cute craft is not as tricky as it might at first seem. Give the youngster several long pipe cleaners with which to fashion a lasso.
Next, when the cowboy character is finished and cut out, it should be stapled to the lasso wherever the child chooses.
A sheriff’s badge or craft pom-pom can be used to conceal the staple.
The child can then trace and cut out a boot and tape the “handle” of the lasso to its back for fun and interesting artwork to display on any wall.
8. Blooming Cactus
Start this fun craft by having the youngster draw and cut out a flower from construction paper. The cowboy from the coloring page should be glued to the flower’s center.
Next, a large cactus from another page should be colored, cut out, and glued to a posterboard, using only glue on the sides of the cactus.
The flower ensemble should then be glued to a long craft stick, which can be used to push it up behind the cactus.
It will look like the cactus is “blooming” when the cowboy and the flower emerge!
9. Cowboy Locker Sign
To make these cute locker signs, have the youngsters color their favorite cowboy pages and glue them to thick cardboard, trimming the edges to the size of the coloring page.
Ordinary packing twine should be used to create rustic frames by gluing them around the cardboard’s edges. This is surprisingly easy when craft glue is used.
Next, the youngsters should add their initials and a title, such as “C.K.’s Corral,” and these fun, personalized locker signs are ready to use.
10. Lasso the Cowboy
This enjoyable craft-turned-game is super easy and fun for all kids. Begin with an empty hand-dish detergent bottle.
A full-length cowboy should be colored, cut out, and glued to the bottle with invisible glue.
To make the cowboy a sheriff, the child can add embellishments such as wiggle eyes, pom-poms on the hat, or a silver star.
Using homemade pipe cleaner rings, the youngsters can see how many times they can “lasso” the cowboy with the rings.
