Back to School Photo Frame Craft Tutorial

I’ve already shared a back to school photo frame craft with you, but I wanted to do another, more simple craft too, one that Aria could get involved with. My all time favourite toddler craft is decoupage, it is simple, Aria loves it and can do the majority of it by herself, and it doesn’t matter if she makes a mess.

For this craft you will need assorted colourful/patterned paper of your choice, a blank photo frame, clear glue and stickers to decorate (optional).

Cut your paper up into small, toddler friendly pieces, there is absolutely no need to keep the size and shape uniform.

Coat the plain frame with clear glue and leave your toddler to stick the paper onto the frame, the messier the better.

Once they have finished sticking (if you can tear them away!) coat the frame with more clear glue.

At this point you can either leave your frame to dry or add a few more embellishments on such as number stickers, stars, and buttons.

Set your frame to the side and leave to dry (much to your toddler’s disappointment). Once the frame has dried trim the edges and pop a photo into your finished frame.

Like it? Pin it for later!

Back to School – School Bus Photo Frame Craft Tutorial

While Aria isn’t starting school this year, she is going to be starting a funded nursery for two and a half hours a day, which is a pretty big deal! We decided to attempt some crafts to record this milestone, and of course I have to share them here! First up is the popsicle school bus photo frame. As with any craft that I attempt this one is simple, requires very few items to make and the end result is (hopefully) effective!

For this simple craft you will need :

Eight popsicle sticks (seven yellow & one black – or plain to be painted)
Bostik Glu Pen
Bostik Glu Dots
Black foam circles (or foam shapes badly cut into circles and coloured in black!)

To start, arrange your popsicle sticks into a bus shape and cut to size

Glue your trimmed sticks together

Glue your black bar and wheels in place

Use Bostik Glue Dots to stick your photos/message in the frame – (optional) write a message onto the black strip.
