Little Red Riding Hood Crafts

Spread the love

These Little Red Riding Hood crafts go together rather quickly when you use the free printable templates. Kids as young as preschoolers can make these if you help with the cutting. They will love putting them together and decorating them…and then, of course, playing with them. They make even better Little Red Riding Hood activities for kindergarten, as this age group should be able to make up their own stories. And the best crafts lead to imaginative play.

Save these Little Red Riding Hood Craft Ideas for later. Pin to your favorite Pinterest board…

Craft #1: Little Red Riding Hood Craft

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD CRAFTS

SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG

Step 1: Make the Triangle

  • Use the Elmer’s glue to attach 3 large popsicle sticks, forming a triangle frame
  • Set the triangle to the side and allow the glue to dry thoroughly

*This is a step that you may want to do the day before and let them sit overnight so that the glue dries completely. While you are at it, make lots of triangle frames so that you are ready to make as many Little Red Riding Hood crafts as you want! (And, believe me, you are going to want to make them all and then some!)

Step 2: Use the Red Riding Hood Template

  • Print the free Little Red Riding Hood printables.
  • Trace each part onto the colored construction paper. Use the photo as a guide for what colors to use. (Basically everything for Cinderella is light blue except for her yellow hair, flesh tone body and white shoes)

*If you do not have access to a printer, you can look at the craft or the template and draw the pieces free-hand to cut out.

Step 2:

  • Place the triangle frame on the newspaper and squeeze out some light blue paint
  • Pinch the pompom with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
  • Paint the triangle frame light blue and set it aside to allow the paint to dry
  • I also painted a piece of paper in the same shade of blue because the blue paper that I had did not match the paint closely enough. Also set this aside to dry.

Step 5: Add the Details

  • Use your markers to add some highlights and details to the items in the basket and the basket itself. I wish that I had cut a little piece of paper and drawn on red and white checks to imitate a cloth hanging out of the basket. Maybe you can add this detail…or really anything that you want. This is YOUR craft…make it your own.
