With school starting pretty soon, we're already getting ready with backpacks and school lunch bags.

It's only 2 weeks away for us, so I thought it would be fun to craft a school bus to help get us excited. We love the song The Wheels on the Bus, so we've made this crafty school bus into a fun interactive toy that goes a long with the song. Here's how we created our bus, then make sure to watch my daughter and I below singing the song together with our crafty yellow bus!

Supplies for Yellow School Bus:

  • 6-8 inch square yellow craft foam
  • scissors
  • black marker
  • black craft foam
  • brad fastener
  • circle craft foam stickers
  • popsicle sticks
  • black pipe cleaner (aka, chenille stems)

1. Cut out your school bus from the yellow craft foam. I just eye-balled the image of a bus or you can print out a school bus image and trace it onto your craft foam. (I love craft foam because it's a little sturdier than paper and the edges don't fray or tear).

2. With your black marker, draw 3 windows onto your bus, even a steering wheel if you'd like. I also drew a headlight and a front grate, giving it some character. Then you need to cut out the windows. This part is for an adult to cut out. You need to poke a hole with your scissor into the center of the space you're cutting and continue cutting around the drawn black window.

3. For the wheels, cut out 2 circles of black craft foam. Again with an adult, poke a hole through the center of the black circle with scissors, and attach a brad fastener to the wheel and the bottom sides of the bus. The brad fasteners will help the wheels spin around as you sing the song.

4. For the people, I used sticky back circle foam stickers. We drew the people's faces on each circle, then attached them to the top of a popsicle stick.

5. For the winder wipers, I cut a 2 inch piece of black pipe cleaner, bent it in half, and pierced another hole through the corner of the bus, where the wipers would go. Thread the pipe cleaner through, and then twist to secure it. Now they are ready for wiping!

Here we are singing The Wheels on the Bus with our new crafty school bus:
