In our house, there’s no such thing as too many unicorn crafts! We love all things unicorn, fairies, and glitter.
Unicorn Craft for Kids
So, when the my daughter and her friend were complaining that it was too hot to go outside the other day, we broke out the craft supplies and got to work.
This unicorn paper plate craft is one of our favorites, because they’re so pretty and can be painted any color you’d like. Don’t care for light teal or pink? Try baby blue or lavender instead! Would you rather have a silver horn instead of a gold one? No problem! Just change the color of the paper you’re using.
Being able to customize this unicorn craft for kids is what makes it even more special! What color will your unicorn be?
