Tissue Paper School Bus Frame

Decorate your bulletin board with this easy original tissue paper craft from the FreeKidsCrafts Team.

Back to School can be an exciting time for kids when they are happily involved with fun and easy craft projects. Put their busy little hands to work crumpling up tissue paper for this fun school bus or other tissue paper crafts.

Suggestion: Bring in a digital camera to take pictures of those kids who don’t come in with a photo for one reason or another. 


School Bus Pattern (click on Printables)

Tissue Paper in yellow and white


Cardstock or heavy paper



Plan ahead and send home a note to parents that you will need a wallet size photo of their child for a special project.

Click on printables and print out School Bus pattern. Cut out the outline before you glue the tissue paper. Cut tissue paper into 2"squares. Crumple each piece into a tight ball. Dip into white glue and place onto pattern. Start with the small sections first to make sure they keep their definition. Continue crumpling and gluing down pieces until the entire pattern is filled.

Tape photos to the back of the school bus showing happy faces looking out of the school bus windows.
