This only requires a few popular craft materials which you are likely to already have in your cupboard! My cupboards are coming down with white paper plates!! I think I am going to have to have some kid’s craft parties to get them all used up.

I think this is also a great educational craft to teach patterns and shapes and would be suitable for preschool (if they got help from Mum/Dad).

Step 1:

Make sure you have your paper template and cut out the house shapes in whichever colors you wish (windows, door, roof and chimney and main body of house). You can see these below.

Step 2:

I would stick down the windows and door to the main body of the house as shown. I always keep a picture of a completed craft beside me while I help the kids do it.

Step 3:

Finish it off by glueing the roof on the
top of the house, and then glue the chimney at the back of the roof.

Instructions For The Grass and Sky:

Step 1:

Cut out two half-circular pieces of blue and green coloured craft paper. Make sure the circumference is the same as the bottom of the paper plate so that it does not hang over the edge.

Step 2:

Stick them inside the bottom of the paper plate and leave around 30 minutes to dry before adding any trees, sun or clouds!

Instructions For The Tree:

Step 1:

Go back to your printed out template and cut out the trunk and the leaves for your trees.

Step 2:

Glue the leaves to the trunk to finish making the tree.

Instructions For The Sun:

Step 1:

Cut out a bright circular piece of yellow paper and a darker shade (orange) of the heptagram shape for the sun.

Step 2:

Glue the circle in the middle of the heptagram shape.

Finally glue on the clouds to the blue sky. Space these out around the sun.


I have provided the template at the bottom of this post! You can change this craft around a little if you wish. You can also change the colors of the craft paper.
