Just download the free template, grab your paper and get crafting! It’s simple enough to make with preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten aged children.

On top of that, it’s super quick too – probably only taking around 10 minutes to make total!

Start by gluing the eyes just above the mouth. There are 2 different eyes in the template, so feel free to mix and match to whatever your child prefers.

If you’re making the red mushroom, glue the circles in the open spaces of the mushroom, then use scissors to trim off any excess that falls off the cap.

Now it’s time to glue on the stalk. For the red mushroom, glue the stalk to the back of the cap. For the brown mushroom, glue it to the front of the stalk, just beneath the smile.
