Back to School Fun - Milk Carton School Bus Craft

Since the Lil Divas started school this week I thought it would be fun to make a school bus. None of the Lil Divas actually ride a school bus but it's such a typical bac to school symbol and both of the Lil Divas are intrigued by them.



What You Need:
1/2 gallon milk carton
4 bottle caps 
white construction paper
black construction paper
hot glue gun
glue sticks
markers/crayons
foam letter stickers
foam circle shape stickers
yellow paint
paintbrush

What We Did:

1. paint milk carton bright yellow - we used 2 coats w/drying time in between


2. cut out 2 strips of white construction paper (bus windows) and fold into thirds. Draw lines at folds to make windows and draw a person in each window.


3. Glue on decorated window strips onto each side of bus.

4. Add strip of black construction paper under windows and affix foam letters spelling SCHOOL to each side.

5. cut small circle (large enough to cover opening of carton), decorate with face (bus driver) and affix using hot glue gun (adult or w/supervision)

6. Add bottle cap wheels using hot glue gun (adult or w/supervision)
Affix foam circles as headlights & write word SCHOOL on top

*If doing this in a classroom you can take pictures of the kids to put in the windows - it would make a great Welcome/Back to School small group project.*
