Who`s crafting?Parents with kids
Do you know all the things a pony can do? Ponies can learn to do all kinds of things. Some pull carts or give children rides, some are shown for their beauty and strength, but the best and strongest ponies are trained to complete in the jumping ring! In today’s project, we are going to make a pony-jumping ring, with jumps and grandstands for the audience. You can make your paper ponies perform amazing jumps and feats, while all the people in the audience are cheering! For extra fun, combine this project with the Pritt “Princess Pony Stables” paper-crafting kit for kids. It is one of many great Pritt arts and craft sets that you can find in a store near you. Happy jumping!
- Print out the attached documents
- A handy Pritt Stick
Cut out all the pony jumping ring images from the printed out crafting templates.
Glue the 2 halves of the field together, which are the big green areas with flowers on them.
Fold the images 1,2 and 3 along the dotted lines, as seen in the picture. These are going to make the grandstands that the audience will sit on while watching the ponies compete. Once you have folded along all the dotted lines, you can use your handy Pritt glue stick to glue each flap into place as seen in the picture.
Fold images 4 into a triangular shape as seen in the picture. These are the show jumping fences that the ponies will jump over.
Repeat step 4 to make the puppies, cat and audience (images 5 and 6).
To make the horse, fold the horse’s body (image 13) along the dotted lines, then glue the white tabs in place, as seen in the pictures. Fold along the dotted line on both tails (image 15), and then glue the 2 sides together. Make sure not to glue the tabs together! Then put glue on the coloured side of the tabs, slip the tail into the slit and glue the tabs to the inside of the horse body (image 13). Fold the horse’s head (image 14) in half and glue the two white tabs together, as seen in the picture. Then glue the horse’s head to the body.
Now you can design the jumping course. Glue the grandstands in positions “a,” “b” and “c.” Then you can decide where to place the fences. Once you have designed the course, you are ready to start the show-jumping competition. We hope you have fun!
And that's it!
We hope you have lots of pony riding fun with your pony-jumping ring.
We would love to see pictures of your pony-jumping ring. You can ask your mum or dad to post pictures on our Facebook wall at “Prittworld”.
