Summertime is the perfect time for kids to enjoy this Lighthouse Craft. If you are visiting lighthouses, it might be fun to adapt the picture to memorialize the lighthouses you visit.
White, red, blue, grey and yellow cardstock
String for hanging
Note: All of the pieces are doubled except for the basic lighthouse tower part. That way, the lighthouse will look good from both sides. Once you do one side, repeat the same step again for the other side - reversing the pieces.
1. Print out the patterns to the size of your printer paper.
2. Transfer the markings to create permanent templates.
3. Trace the templates onto the appropriate colored cardstock and cut out all of the pieces.
4. Start by gluing the top blue windows onto the roof piece.
5. Adhere the roof piece onto the white lighthouse. Adhere the grey piece now over covering the seam lines.
6. Glue the red stripes onto the lighthouse.
7. Glue on the door and the round yellow windows.
8. Pierce a hole through the top and tie a string through it to hang.
