Paper Lighthouse

Add a touch of summer at the beach to your home with this paper lighthouse. Parents should help kids print out the template (print out to fit the printer paper) and create permanent templates that can be easily traced onto the appropriate colored cardstock. Remember to finish both sides so that the lighthouse can hang freely. Kids can create these to hang in their windows or on their walls.

Craft Template - Lighthouse

 Lighthouse Template






(All of the pieces are doubled except for the basic lighthouse tower part. That way, the lighthouse will look good from both sides. Once you do one side, repeat the same step again for the other side - reversing the pieces.)

1. Print out the patterns to the size of your printer paper.
2. Transfer the markings to create permanent templates as described in the tutorial below.

3. Trace the templates onto the appropriate colored cardstock and cut out all of the pieces.
4. Start by gluing the top blue windows onto the roof piece.
5. Adhere the roof piece onto the white lighthouse. Adhere the grey piece now over covering the seam lines.
6. Glue the red stripes onto the lighthouse.
7. Glue on the door and the round yellow windows.
8. Pierce a hole through the top and tie a string through it to hang.
