Robot collage children's craft project

Making robots is always a winner in our house, these cardboard collage robots are super fun and easy to make. If you attach the arms and lets using paper fasteners you could even make them into puppets.

If you love this project but don't have the materials, check out our fun kids CRAFTS KITS, our MEGA COLLAGE CREATIVE CRAFT BOX includes all the materials you need to make these COLLAGE ROBOTS plus lots of other fun crafts.


  • Cardboard
  • Paints
  • White paper to make the eyes and control panels
  • Coloured corrugated card and shiny silver card (optional)
  • Paddle pop sticks (optional)
  • PVA glue or glue sticks
  • Marker pens or paint markers.


The first job is to get messy and paint all the cardboard. Once the paint is dried, we cut out lots of different shapes; think body shapes then lots of other shapes that could be arms, legs and heads. We also drew lots of eyes and control panels onto white paper which I help cut out.
