Kids can let their imaginations run wild with this Robot Craft. It is a fun and frugal way to teach the letter R with scrap craft supplies.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a robot to help you do things? What kid doesn’t dream about having a robot to help them with tasks like making beds and doing chores? Well, this craft won’t give your kids a real robot, but it will give them something that can make their imaginations take off.
This Robot Craft for Kids is great if you are working with younger kids and introducing them to the Letter R. Older kids might like this as well as they create stories about their robots and the adventures they have. So let’s get creative and make some robots!
Letter ‘R’ Robot Craft for Kids Tutorial
- black party cup
- popsicle sticks
- googley eyes
- decorative tape
- scrap felt pieces
- pom poms
- chenille stems
- scrap fabric
- hot glue/glue gun
- utility knife (Only mom or dad should use this!)
- foam stickers
- tin foil
- decorative paper
- construction paper
There are no rules when you are making your robot! Just go to town!
1. We started by adding some eyes and a mustache with some mustache tape we had!
2. We followed up with some pom pom hair and some felt body buttons.
3. To make the arms, we broke a popsicle stick in half and wrapped it in scrap fabric. Using a utility knife, we cut slits into the side of the cup and slide the arms in. We tacked the arms on with a little hot glue.
This the ultimate “scrap” craft. I really let my daughter take the reigns on this! Anything you have laying around will work beautifully for this robot. The one thing we should have used was tinfoil! But I swear when you’re forced to “find” things around the house, nothing jumps out at you.
