How many of you love to sing this rhyme with your kids?

Me and my kid both love this rhyme, we just love the various sounds in this rhyme.

Our house is along the road side and me and my kid keep watching the buses running on roads. He is very fond of buses and tells me the colour of bus whenever he sees one. This is our favourite time pass even when we travel.

Process to make Popsicle stick Bus kid craft

1 ) Make Base of Bus with Popsicle sticks

Take three ice-cream sticks and paste them to form the base of the bus.

I did not have coloured ice cream sticks so I painted them on my own. You can buy coloured ice-cream sticks, it is easily available in the market.

As me and my kid both love painting and crafting thus all the cutting was done by me and he helped me in pasting the sticks, wheels and buttons. We enjoyed this activity very much.

2) Make windows of craft bus

To make the windows of the bus, cut the sticks into half and paste them vertically.

To make it more interesting you can paste the photos of your kid or his friends in the windows.

3) Make roof of Bus

Take another stick and paste them horizontally to form the roof of a bus.

4) Make bus headlights

Paste one bead on the base of the bus to make a head light of bus and one button on top of the bus.

5 ) Make Wheels of the bus

From the black paper cut the round shapes to make the wheels of the bus . Paste the wheels on the bus.

To give the wheels a fine look I used disposable silver colour plate cut outs to make the outer rim of wheels. You can also use grey coloured paper for this.

6) Make a curvy road

Now you need to make a road, from the black paper cut the curvy shape road and from white paper cut the small pieces to paste on road to make the division line on road.

Paste the road below the wheels.
