Supplies needed:

  • Free printable pdf coloring page (the download link is located at the bottom of this post)
  • Crayons, markers or colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to use the build a crayon activity:

First, print out the coloring page template onto white printer paper or cardstock.

Begin by writing the child’s name in the oval. If your students or children are able to write their names themselves, this would make a great opportunity to practice!

Alternatively, you can print multiple pages out and write different color names into the ovals. Kids can then color in the crayon to match.

Next, using crayons, markers or colored pencils, begin coloring in all of the shapes that make up the crayon.

Cut out each shape using scissors. If the your children or students are able to, this would be a great time for them to practice working on their scissor skills. If they are unable to safely use scissors, you can cut out the pieces for them.

Next, begin gluing the pieces of the crayon together to match the sample at the bottom of the page.

You can either be done at this step, or glue the crayon onto construction paper to add a fun colorful background.

This craft can be used at home or as a fun way to decorate student’s cubbys, desks, or walls of the classroom.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
