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 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

Head to our FREE DOWNLOADS page and print out some fun robot parts to use in your ROBOT JUMPING JACKS >>>


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.
