Unicorn Books and Unicorn Craft

I love finding activities to do with kids that correspond to their favorite books. I also enjoy using recyclables to make crafts with kids.

The Mini Mad Things Instagram page sells inexpensive templates to trace onto cardboard to make crafts. I recommend using pastels and paint sticks for these cardboard projects.

I used the unicorn craft with a child that loves “The Unicorn Academy” book series by Julie Sykes. If you care for younger children I have listed some children’s books about unicorns for younger kids below as well.

You Will Need:

Unicorn Templates


X-Acto Knife

Markers, Pastels, Crayons, or Paint Sticks

What to Do:

1. Print unicorn templates from Mini Mad Things

2. Trace template onto cardboard.

3. Cut out the shapes.

4. Allow children to decorate with markers, pastels, crayons, or paint sticks.
