Step 1: Download and Print the Free Template

Download the Free School Bus Craft Template. You will be stapling the template to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Bus Craft Shapes

Print the School Bus 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, 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

School Bus Craft by Crafting Jeannie

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

  1. Glue the white hubcaps onto the center of the wheels.
  2. Glue the wheels onto the bottom of the yellow bus.
  3. Glue the black line across the widest part of the bus (at the top of the widest part).
  4. Glue the one of the black window onto the bus where the driver would sit.
  5. Next, glue on the long black door piece and the rest of the black windows. It looks nice if you can try to make them all line up at the top.
  6. Glue the stop sign onto the black line right beside the door.
  7. Don’t forget to write your name on the back!
