Tissue Paper School Bus Frame

Decorate your bulletin board with this easy Tissue Paper School Bus Frame. Make enough school buses to carry all of the kids in the class to school. 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.

Trivia:  Every school day, some 450,000 school buses transport more than 24 million children to and from schools and school-related activities.

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.

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.
