Need a robot craft activity that will keep the kids busy for at least 30 minutes, but don’t want loads of prep or to clear up for hours afterwards?
Here’s your answer (includes free printable)…
I’m always on the hunt for new craft ideas for kids. Sometimes I just want a quick, easy, low-effort craft activity for the boys. This robot craft would be great for a play date or party as it requires very little set-up or cleaning up afterwards!
For this robot craft, you will need:
- print-outs of this basic robot template (with many thanks to SweetClipArt, whose design I adapted for this)
- shiny, sparkly and/or puffy stickers for the buttons and antennae in various colours and sizes
COST: a few quid
TIME: 30 minutes
Pickle (2 and a half) really enjoyed this one. He sang ‘twinkle twinkle’ as soon as he saw the stars and he was very pleased when he worked out how to take the backing paper off the stickers all on his own. He kept saying ‘this is the sticky side, mummy’! I did let Chops (15 months) explore the stickers too, but as they very quickly went into his mouth, I think he is still a bit young for this one…
Pickle finished his robot with a line of silver dot stickers, which he explained: “That’s the robot’s belt, mummy.” Of course I couldn’t resist having a try myself!
