Jumping jack robots kids crafts by Mini Mad Things

Once in a while a craft project comes along that is a winner every time, for us this is it. Everyone loves making puppets, add robots into the mix and it's a home run. Whenever we have made these at home or in one of our KIDS CRAFT CLASSES the kids love it. The best part about this project is that there is no right or wrong way to make a robot. In fact, the more crazy the better!


  • Cardboard
  • Split pins
  • Paints, crayons or pens to decorate
  • White paper
  • Glue - PVA or glue sticks
  • String
  • Scissors


Begin by cutting body, arm, leg and head shapes from the cardboard, then decorate your robot body parts. We used white paper to make the robot eyes, mouths and control panels and glued them on.
