Ahhh the unicorn! Who wouldn’t want to build a unicorn? They are quite popular these days with kids. A legendary single-horned animal with great magic and wisdom.
Growing up the only unicorn I remember was from the “The Last Unicorn” movie. Although awesome, the movie was a bit dark for today’s standards. Also, the unicorn in it was not a bright and colorful creature they are depicted to be today. Instead, she was pure white and I remember her eyes turning a fierce red at some point in the movie.
But, white or colorful, happy or fierce I think we can all agree that unicorns are pretty cool creatures.
And I don’t know about you, but I haven’t met a single kid who hasn’t liked unicorns at some point in their lives. So, this build a unicorn template should surely keep your little one feeling magical, happy and busy.
All about the Build-a-Unicorn Template:
This Build a Unicorn craft features 2 pages:
- One page is the unicorn in black & white (without color) so she can be colored, cut out and put together.
- If your kids aren’t a fan of coloring, there is a pre-colored version consisting of a colorful unicorn in pinks, yellows and blues.
With either version, simply cut out the pieces and put the little unicorn together with a bit of glue/paste. Hang the unicorn on the fridge or give it away as a crafty gift. It’s that simple.
This is also a great homeschooling craft for preschoolers or kindergarteners. Not only does it give kids practice with scissors but putting the unicorn together teaches kids how to work their brains creatively.
Go ahead and laminate
I recommend laminating all of our Build activities. Laminating gives this craft a bit more permanence. Kids can put the craft together over and over again without worrying about having to cut and color each time. I don’t use anything fancy, just a simple and easy laminator. This is the laminator I use and recommend, you literally just turn it on, it heats up, and you’re ready to start laminating anything everything!
I’m also a big fan of the self-sealing laminating pouches! They are super easy! You literally just place your printable in a letter size pouch, run it through the laminator and you have a sealed and long-lasting item!
Also, if you do choose to laminate, stick little self-adhesive velcro dots on the laminated pieces so your kids can attach and reattach easily. This eliminates the use of any messy glue!
Below is what will be included in your download (see the bottom of the page for actual download instructions):
Need a little guidance? This is what our unicorn looks like when she’s all put together. A little magical cutie, I must say!

Hi Mrs Merry,
Thank you for this! My daughter loves the unicorn. We printed it, laminated it, cut it and then we payed a sort of Hangman game. We call it, build the unicorn before mommy guesses the word. My daughter has lots of fun playing this game 🙂. I thought I should share this idea with you even if you probably you heard it before 😅
I’m so glad your daughter enjoyed the unicorn printable! :) and thanks for sharing the game…sounds fun!
