Shape Uncle Sam craft for kids

We have created an Uncle Sam craft last year as part of our 4th of July craft collection. Because we love shape crafts, we couldn’t resist coming up with a shape version of it.

Our goal is to create shape crafts for all seasons and holidays and we’re almost there. We have crafted with all sorts of shapes to create Santa, bats or a school bus.

How to make a shape Uncle Sam craft

The shape Uncle Sam template comes with two versions:

1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
