3D Collage Unicorns

Collage unicorn kids craft activity

For a long time I had managed to shun the world of unicorns (there seems to be a plague of them at the moment, they are everywhere). However, when my little one turned 3 they firmly landed in our world, with all their pink sparkles and rainbow joy, and are showing no signs of leaving.

Although a little reluctantly, I have decided to embrace the magical UNICORN and ride the rainbow wave! So here is our first unicorn craft project, which I have to admit was a huge hit; my little one is still playing with her unicorns weeks later.

Before we get into the making, I wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for visiting MINI MAD THINGS. All the crafts I share here on the blog are pretty much just made for the love of making things with my children. Even if I didn't have a craft blog, we would still be happily making together around our kitchen table. It is just the icing on the cake that I can share our ideas with YOU through our website and INSTAGRAM page. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have a business that I'm truly passionate about. So next time you are looking for a creative, thoughtful and eco-friendly gift for the little people in your life, it would be totally awesome if you could keep our range of fun kids CRAFT KITS, ART BOOKS and ECO ART SUPPLIES in mind. You can see our full range of MINI MAD THINGS products HERE.



  • Thick corrugated cardboard

Cut your unicorn body and legs from thick cardboard using a craft knife. Cut a slot into the top of each of the legs. Make the width of the slot the same width as your cardboard. Then cut 2 of the same sized slots into the bottom of the unicorn body.

Begin do decorate your unicorn using paints, collage, stickers or washi tape, whatever materials you have available. We also added yarn to make a tail and mane.

Once your paint and glue have dried, you can also decorate the other side of your unicorn.

My little one loved her unicorns so much, we decided to make them a house to live in! We converted the MINI ART HOUSE project we made for my book UNBOXED: Adventures in cardboard into the perfect colourful unicorn residence.
