10 Craft Ideas To Do With Mulan Coloring Pages
Here are 10 affordable, exciting, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Party Decorations
If you’re throwing a Mulan-themed party on a budget, you can use my pictures of the popular Disney character as inexpensive decorations, either on their own or to supplement store-bought.
For example, multiple figures could be colored in, cut out, and strung up to create bunting for the wall or over a doorway.
Individual figures could also be purposed with a notecard glued to them to let guests know what the food items are.
Whole pictures could be used as place settings or placemats, as well, or hung on walls with “Bathroom is this way” written on them.
9. Trivia Sheets
If you’re hosting a movie party or sleepover for your kiddo and his/her friends, why not incorporate a fun trivia game into the mix (with prizes!)?
You can use one of the Mulan illustrations as the background; copy and paste the entire picture into a word processor document.
From there, you can fade the image and put the questions right over it.
8. Pleated Skirt Mulan
Use a picture of Mulan where she is wearing her blue, green, and yellow dress (or pink, red, and black or dark blue, light blue, and red).
You’re going to cut her out but cut off the bottom of her dress (the skirted part), color her in, and paste her down onto a piece of construction paper.
Then, you’ll take another piece of construction paper in the color of the skirt and cut it down to size in the shape of a triangle with a flat top.
Then you’re going to pleat that paper so that it becomes skirt-shaped. When it’s all pleated, paste it down under the top part of Mulan.
You can add or draw in other items, like a background village.
7. TP Roll Mulan And Friends
Turn Mulan and her friends into paper figurines by coloring them in and cutting them out.
Then, you’ll need as many toilet paper rolls as you have figures; paste the toilet paper rolls (vertically) to the backs of the cut-outs.
You can then display your cut-outs on a table or as part of a diorama.
6. Paper Dolls
Make Mulan paper dolls out of my illustrations with just a few simple steps.
Color in and cut out the figures you want to use, and then hold the cut-outs up against cardstock or construction paper.
Trace around the shapes and cut those outlines from the heavier-duty paper. You’re going to paste the two pieces together so that the paper dolls are reinforced.
Then, you can either have your kids play with them as-is, or you can add craft sticks to the back to make them more like puppets.
5. Party Invitations
For your child’s Mulan-themed party, you don’t have to scour party supplies stores or the Internet for invitations – you can use my Mulan illustrations.
I recommend copying and pasting the picture you want to use into a word processor document, then shrinking it to a fourth of the size.
Put it in the upper-left corner – and turn the picture upside down.
Now, print it off and then fold the page in half so that the picture is on the outside and then again so that the picture is on the front, right-side up!
Let your kids be reminded of this with Mulan bookmarks made from my illustrations. You’ll likely want to resize the figures so that they fit on an eight or 10-inch by four-inch strip of paper.
Mulan was fierce and courageous and should encourage your children to read books about fierce and courageous heroines.
Have your kids color them in and cut them out and then paste them onto the cardstock or construction paper rectangle.
You could also punch a hole near the top and add a tail of yarn for good measure.
3. Hair Bows
To make Mulan hair bows, you will need shrink sheets; you’re going to print the Mulan figures you want to use onto the shrink sheets and color them in with markers.
Bake them off per the instructions and let them cool completely. Then you’ll need ready-made hair bows (which you can find online at Amazon or at craft stores).
Hot glue the shrink sheet figures to the center of the bows and let them solidify. And voila! You have adorable new hair accessories.
2. Book Covers
To cover a small book, you will first need to copy and paste the Mulan picture onto a word processor document whose orientation has been changed to landscape.
Place and center it on the right-hand side, leaving about an inch of margin on the top, bottom, and side.
Print that off, have your kids color it in, and then flip the page over. You’re going to center the book on the page and make creases where the top and bottom cover lie.
Remove the book and fold along the creases – this should create two flaps you can then use to slide over the book’s hardcover.
1. Mulan Fans
Have your kids color in and cut out the Mulan figure they want to use.
Take a piece of construction paper and lay it flat, then paste the Mulan cut-out to it – it can go anywhere, off to the side, right in the middle, etc.
Then they’re going to fold the paper up like an accordion. They can add adornment by punching holes on the sides and stringing ribbon through.
