Is it too early to talk about going back to school? OK, well, it’s never too early to use our Shapes School Bus Craft to continue learning about shapes in a super fun way that starts getting us ready for school.
As I alluded to, this is an easy craft that’s a great learning tool, too. From the circle wheels to the square windows, it’s such a fun way to continue teaching and learning about shapes. And we have a Free Printable School Bus Template in color as well as black and white, in case you want to make the bus in your own colors.
Use Shapes to Make a School Bus Craft
To make our Shapes School Bus Craft you will need our school bus template, cardstock, a blue pen, scissors, and a glue stick.
Shapes School Bus Craft Supplies Needed
- School Bus Template
- Blue pen
- Glue stick
Paper School Bus Craft Step by Step Directions
Print out the template on cardstock for the bus. We’re using the colored version of the template here, but you can use the black and white version if you’d like to make the bus in your own colors.
Cut out the pieces.
First, take one of the small square shapes and glue it on the top left corner of the yellow rectangular piece.
Then, glue the blue rectangular piece next to the window as the door for the bus. Glue the rest of the windows one next to another.
Next, glue the smaller circular pieces in the middle of the bigger circles to make the wheels for the bus.
Glue both of the wheels in place.
Now, glue the half circular orange pieces on the top two corners as the head lights for the bus.
And glue the red triangular pieces on both sides of the bus as the front and back lights.
Finally, take a blue colored pen and add a little detail to the windows.
