Did you know that Ice Skates were used in Finland earlier than 200 A.D.? Learn more about Ice Skates on Wikipedia.com

Step 1: Download and Print the Free Ice Skate Craft Template

Download the Free Ice Skate Craft Template. You will be stapling the printed PDF to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Winter Craft Shapes

Print the Ice Skate Craft Template and staple the pieces to multiple sheets of paper before cutting

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know that 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 cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble the Paper Ice Skate Craft

I recommend having a finished craft so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. First, glue your rectangle blade onto the bottom of your ice skate.
  2. Draw on your laces with a marker. Don’t forget to write your name on the back
  3. Lacing craft: punch holes in your skate where the laces will go.
  4. Lacing craft: tape a piece of yarn to the back of your ice skate and thread it through the first hole (closest to the toe).
  5. Lacing craft: wrap the yarn around the edge of the paper and thread it through the next hole (see the image).
  6. Lacing craft: Leave one hole empty at the top of the skate. Then, tape the end of the threaded yarn to the back of the skate (see the images below).
  7. Lacing craft: Finally, tie a bow with a separate piece of yarn in the top hole.
  8. Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
