Horse Crafts and Activities

Tracing Horses

Tracing Horses shows all the ways you can "see" a horse -- realistic, imaginary, colorful, or fuzzy.

What You'll Need:

Book or magazine with horses


Tracing paper


Coloring tools such as markers, crayons, colored pencils, or pastel chalks


Blunt scissors

Craft glue

Poster board

Step 1: Look through a book or a magazine to find a picture of a horse. Using tracing paper and a pencil, trace the horse shape several times.

Step 2: Now use different coloring tools to decorate the horses. Color one in with crayons and use chalk to fill in another one. You can even cut and glue felt to cover one of the horses. Use as many different mediums to color your pictures as you can.

Be creative with your colors, too. Your horses can be red and orange, or they can have purple and green stripes.

Step 3: Cut all your new horses out, and glue them into a poster picture on a piece of poster board.
