You’ll need a few materials for this lighthouse craft:

red cupcake liners
card stock
(in various colors)


I drew a long triangle shape for my daughter to cut from yellow card stock.  Use the red cupcake liners to create the lighthouse.  Fold two cupcake liners in half red side our and two cupcake liners white side out.  Line them up and add a bit of glue so they stay put as shown in the picture above.  Use the scissors to cut a slightly slanted line up both sides of the stack of cupcake liners.

Glue all of the pieces to a piece of blue card stock.  We added a black top and brown beach to our lighthouse picture.
