How much fun are these emoji faces?! You can make them with construction paper or a yellow paper plate. You can even add a popsicle stick to the plate and kids will love holding it up to their faces.

Get the Free Emoji Craft Printable below and you will be able to make enough supplies for 12 kids (or more!) with about 10 minutes of cutting.

Watch the Emoji Craft video and see how easy it is to make the supplies and assemble this easy Preschool Craft:

Step 2: Staple and cut out the Emoji shapes

Once you have the Emoji craft template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Staple the templates to multiple sheets of colored paper

You can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. 

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will have so much fun making their own fun and easy emoji!

  1. Decide if you will be making a paper emoji or plate emoji. Then start by gluing on the eyes.
  2. Glue on the mouth and any extra details.
  3. If you’re making the paper emoji, make sure all the pieces are attached, and you’re finished!
  4. If you’re making the plate emoji, flip the plate over.
  5. Tape the popsicle stick to the back of the plate. I recommend using two pieces of masking tape.
  6. Don’t forget to put your name on the back.

After you select either the paper or yellow plate, start by gluing on the emoji’s eyes.

      1. Hi Alucia, you just have to enter your email address into the light blue box at the bottom of the post. Then you will receive the template via email. Have a great day.

      1. Hi,
        I just sent you a message. The way the website works is that it sends every activity via email. So you should have received an email with the link to the template. Even then, sometimes the emails get blocked altogether or sent to SPAM or PROMOTIONS folders. If you can’t find the email in one of those folders, just email me at Jeannie@craftingjeannie.com
        Have a great day,
        Jeannie

      1. Hi~ Thanks for contacting me, the activity should come via email immediately. But, because it’s sent automatically, the emails sometimes get sent to SPAM, Promotions, or blocked altogether. I sent it to your email directly, I hope you receive it. ~Jeannie
