Back To School Bus Craft
Back To School Bus Craft Supplies Needed:
- White and Yellow Construction Paper
- Toilet Paper Roll
- Black Washable Paint
Directions for How To Make Your Back To School Bus:
Help your children gather the supplies needed and grab a spot at your table. First grab your yellow construction paper and sketch the outline of a school bus.
Next, help your child cut the bus out. Take your white paper and cut out some windows. One driver window and 4-5 bus windows depending on how long you made your bus. Tape the windows onto your bus.
Draw 2 black lines under the windows with your black marker. Tires are next! Pour out a little bit of the black washable paint onto a scrap piece of paper. Take your paper roll and dab the end into the paint. Press the roll down onto your bus to make 2 wheels: one front wheel and one back wheel.
Once the tire paint dries, take your black marker and write “school bus” on the side below the black lines. Your child might like to write their school name on the side! *My son wanted to add the “stop” sign to his bus so feel free to add any extra parts! And there is your Back To School Bus Craft.
