The crafts on my site are super easy to prep and assemble. I love putting my craft together and then letting kids copy what I’ve made. They always create their craft with their own spin, and their personality shines through.

To make this craft, print the template onto your choice of white or colored paper. If you have the time, print each piece in the corresponding colors. Then, just cut the pieces out and glue them together. You can watch the video below to see a step-by-step tutorial.
