Kids LOVE adventure, and medieval times are a captivating part of history. Here are some ideas for medieval crafts for kids that will encourage them to dream and imagine.
With our medieval kids crafts you will be able to turn cardboard into tiny figurines! These figurines are perfect company for our medieval cardboard castle.
We found a way to turn regular cardboard into figurines to add to your cardboard castle and act out your adventures.
With our templates and instructions you will be able to create any characters you want! Plus, we are recycling and being green too!
What you’ll need to make these medieval figurines
To be able to create any of our characters, and more of your own, you will need just our printable template as a base.
We have two figurine templates on this one printable.
- Our first template is a general one, for any character you wish – like our princess, and knight. You can also make things like: court jester, queen, king, merchants, servants, priest and more.
- The second template is for the mean dragon. Click Here to Print Your Medieval Figurines Template

Evil, Fire Breathing Dragon Craft With Paper is Perfect Medieval Craft for Children
How fabulous does this dragon look?! He is so easy to make with paper and coloring pencils. You just need to add googly eyes.
Every story has an evil character and this one is a dragon! Watch him because he breathes fire and it is super hot! He will be trying to hold Princess hostess and stop the good knight from rescuing her. Like my other medieval figurines he is so easy to make using colored craft papers.
How we made it:
- Colored him green
- Used a black marker for detail
- Added googly eyes
- Color some white tissue paper orange and yellow for his fire.
Other Medieval Figurines You Could Make
What other medieval arts and crafts could you make for your battle? How about a whole troop of soldiers? No castle is guarded by a single knight. In the castle you could also make some prisoners who may be in the dungeon. You could also make some castle staff, like a cook, a cleaner and how about a King and Queen. The young Princess would need her parents to be present.
Don’t Forget Your Castle!
Now that we have all the characters to act out our adventures, don’t forget your cardboard medieval castle! I have step by step guidelines to help you make this. It is an essential part to help you with your pretend play.
