Awesome Build A Unicorn Craft (Magical Printable Fun)

Build A Unicorn free printable craft for preschoolers and toddlers


To go along with my recent build a fairy printable, I decided to share a cute little unicorn as well. It’s a simple build a unicorn craft that would make a great friend for the fairy.

Just like the fairy, it’s an easy craft you can do at home, in which your kids will need to cut out and correctly put together the pieces to make a unicorn! Magical!

This craft is great for toddlers and preschoolers because it’s so simple to do!

It would also be great little unicorn activity if you’re having a magical unicorn themed party!

I’ve created quite a lot more characters and will be uploading them when I can – so be sure to check back regularly.

What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?

When making this build a unicorn craft, your children will have the chance to practice and develop some skills such as:


  • Cutting Skills – if you feel they’re ready, you can let them have a go at cutting out the pieces all by themselves – they’ll need to be careful and have good scissor control if they want to cut out the pieces neatly
  • Fine Motor Skills – when they’re sticking and picking up and moving the body parts and placing them where they need to go
  • Pencil Control – if you print off the black and white version they can practice their pencil control and develop hand strength through coloring.

This simple unicorn craft will also give them a chance to practice their concentration and perseverance skills as they may find it tricky to place the pieces exactly where they want them to go.

How To Prepare This Build A Unicorn Craft?

First you’re going to want to download the unicorn craft printables by clicking on the download box at the bottom of the page – I’ve made a color and a black and white version!

Other Materials You’ll Need:


  • Safety scissors
  • Card Stock or Craft Paper
  • Glue
  • Some coloring pencils or pens

Once you’ve downloaded the templates, you’ll need to print them off onto paper or card.

Then, you can cut them out. Or if you’d like your children to get some cutting practice, you can let them have a go.

Then you can stick all the pieces together to build your unicorn.

It can be really nice to let you’re kids have a bit of free rein here and see if they can work it out – kind of like a puzzle.

If they’re struggling, the order I’d do it in is:

  1. Stick the head on the body
  2. Stick the ears on the head
  3. Stick the hair on the head
  4. Stick the horn on the hair
  5. Stick the legs on back of the body
  6. Stick the tail to the back of the body

(I expect you could have worked that out but I do like to be thorough…)

The finished unicorn should look something like this:

If you want to you could always laminate them and use them as a puzzle. That way the different parts would be kept nice and they can use them again and again.

I’ve also created some more cute characters which I will be releasing in the coming weeks so they could use them together in a mix and match game as well (if you don’t want to miss them you can turn on notifications by clicking on the bell in the bottom right corner).


After that you’re all done!

Let your kids practice their cutting and sticking skills in a simple and fun way!

But Wait… There’s Also A Black And White Build A Unicorn Craft




I’ve also made a black and white version which would be an awesome way for your little ones to practice their coloring skills and personalize their unicorn in their own way!

I hope your children enjoy making this simple craft – be sure to check back in for more awesome educational printables.
