No matter how school may look this year, there are still some classic images of those back to school milestones. One of which is the school bus, whether we get to ride it or not. If your kids are ready to get on that bus, bring it to life with our Paper Loop School Bus Craft!
Who’s ready to get back to school? I think that question might usually be met with a few groans, but I think we’re all ready to go back these days. Whether we actually get to or not, that’s still the question. Until then, we make the most of the time we have.
If you’re looking for some more fun back to school craft ideas, you’re in luck! We have plenty to see, like our Apple Paper Photo Frame for those first day pictures, this Jumbo Craft Stick Pencil Craft, our Craft Stick Chalkboard Easels, and our Cardboard Roll Desk Cubby.
To make our Paper Loop School Bus you will need cardstock in grey or silver, as well as construction paper in yellow and black, markers in yellow, red, light blue, and white, a 1” hole punch, a stapler, scissors, and a glue stick.
Make a Paper Loop School Bus
- Cardstock – grey, silver
- Paper – yellow, black
- Markers – yellow, red, light blue, white
- 1” hole punch
- Glue stick
Begin by cutting a yellow strip for the bus.
To get the right size, simply cut the yellow paper in thirds in the widest direction.
Also cut your grey or silver cardstock base in half.
Draw a small rectangle with red marker on the back edge toward the center of the yellow strip. Make a light blue rectangle on the opposite edge, directly across from it, to make lights.
Now roll your loop and staple in place.
Punch 2 holes from the black paper with the 1” hole punch. Glue just the tops of the circles under the lights as shown above.
Draw a road design on the grey or silver cardstock. Depending on the road color used, use either white or yellow.
Position the loop on the road with the wheels resting on the page. Staple in place.
Next, cut 4 small squares, a rectangle, and a strip from the black paper.
Glue the rectangle for the door.
And glue the windows in place.
Finally, write your bus number or as we did, school #1, on the black strip with the white marker.
Glue in place under the windows.
We love how these paper loop crafts just pop off the page!
