Toddlers’ Handcraft for the Summer – Unicorn Hair

By Ali Mathieson


  • An adult to help you
  • Colour paper strips (you could cut strips from white paper and colour them yourself)
  • Sheet of white paper (or two if you plan to colour the strips yourself)
  • Black felt tip pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue or glue stick


  1. Draw the face on the sheet of white paper. Remember that the chin should be near the bottom of your paper to leave enough space for the hair.
  2. You can either fold the hair strips, or you could wind them into a curl around a pencil etc.
  3. Once they are all folded or wound up, glue them into place around your model’s face.


This is an excellent exercise for hand dexterity and co-ordination.

Allow your little one to manage as much of this as he or she can.


Everyone loves a REAL unicorn!

Draw a unicorn profile and glue the curled strips into place for a magic unicorn mane.

Use sparkly wrapping paper for the unicorns mane.
