I’m so excited to share with you today my robot craft idea for kindergarten kids to make for friends!
Not only do I show you a tutorial to make this adorable photo frame with robot stickers, but also how kids can make matching gift tags and a cute birthday card.
These craft ideas would be so cute to make and gather together as a gift for a child who loves robots, space, or aliens, or gift to a friend who’s having a robot themed birthday party.

HOW TO CRAFT THE ROBOT FRAME
STEP 1: PAINT THE WOOD FRAME
- Use a foam paint brush to base coat the frame white on the front, back and edges. Only one coat is needed.
- With another paint brush, paint two coats of yellow on the edges, and 3 coats on the front of the frame. I left the back side white.
- Use the end of a pencil to make dots on the outer edges of the frame.
- Oops, I forgot to take pictures of the painting steps. They would have been boring anyway, right?
TIP: A hair dryer can be used to speed up drying time in between paint coats.
STEP 2: PREPARE FOR THE FRAME INSERT
You’ll be using the cardboard frame insert of the frame as a cutting template.
It’s best to print on scrapbooking cardstock if you plan to use my free printable.
There are two options for the frame insert. You can either use one of my saying/quotes free printable or a photograph.
- If you plan to use my free printable instead of a photo of kindergarten friends, go ahead and download and print it out on cardstock.
- Cut out the square and then place the template centered within the square.
- Use a pencil to trace around the template and then cut out the square saying/quote.
- Insert the cardstock in the photo opening first and then the cardboard template last.
- If you’re going to use a photo of your child and their friend instead of the printable, you’ll still be using the cardboard template.
- Center template over portion of the photo you plan to use and trace around the template.
- Cut out photo and insert it first and then template last.

HOW TO MAKE ROBOT GIFT TAGS
My gift tag printable allows you to have tags left over to use for future gift crafting.
Download and print out gift tags. You can cut outside the black outline like I did or cut so that the black outline doesn’t show. Use a hole punch at the top of tag to allow for tying on some curling ribbon.
Peel and place the stickers on the gift tags.

HOW TO MAKE A ROBOT BIRTHDAY CARD
Fold a piece of scrapbook cardstock in half and crease.
Use a ruler and markers to make lines on the birthday card and then make some dots at each end and corner.
Peel the stickers off and place in the center area.
Write “Happy Birthday” inside, sign your name and then you’re all done!
Kindergarten aged kids will have loads of fun making these robot crafts for their friends! What sticker theme do you think your child would choose?

This is SO fun Allyson! Our great nieces and nephews would go crazy for this (they’d probably love dinosaurs too).
I LOVE robots so this is relevant at any age! As a matter of fact Hubs and I are gathering bits and pieces to make a robot out of upcycled pieces just for fun.
Thanks, Sara! I can’t wait to see your upcycled robot. I bet it will be awesome!
