Bus, Back to School Craft

Oh, back to school… The craziness of the #LibraryLife summer has come to an end and you want a simple craft to get the kids back into the “school time” spirit. This imagination focused craft is straight forward and encourages kids to be creative while practicing their drawing and coloring skills.

Here’s what you need:

  • Paper / Card Stock / or Cardboard
  • Die cut bus or hand cut
  • Glue stick
  • Markers

This craft starts with the kids gluing the bus anywhere on the paper. Encourage them to imagine what they are going to draw as a background before they glue down the bus. After the bus is glued down, the kids can decorate the backgrounds however they want. You could hone this in and have them draw a specific theme or keep it wide open… up to you.

This craft goes great with:

  • My Bus by Byron Barton
  • The Smushy Bus by Leslie Helakoski
