The printable crafts fun continues! As always, I make sure that at least part of this craft is a free printable for you – so I share a Free 3d Robot Printable (make a basic robot for free!), as well as full 15 page set of 3d Robots to print, make and mix and match! I actually think the mix and match element is super fun and provides you with endless possibilities!
The fantastic Lou Lou Zauberwelt and her kids had a go at making our printable and send us their super fun final robots!
These paper robots are definitely a “together project” – super fun for the kids to color and cut, but they will need some assistance in the final assembly. 3d paper projects can be a little fiddly!

How to make your 3d Robot Craft
As mentioned we have 6 different 3d robot designs to choose from – but you can mix and match them in a way that gives you MANY more robots. Simply choose a robot head, robot body, robot lower body, robot hands and robot feet…… then mix and match to your hearts content!
Begin by taking your time coloring in your chosen robot sections. A combination of washable marker pens, crayons and water colors is great!
Once ready, carefull cut out your chosen robot pieces. And make the folds in the right places.
Now glue them together using your glue stick. This is probably the trickiest part of any 3d paper craft, so patience and support from adult are advised!
Now you can mix and match your robots! You can build a robot that is very tall, or very small. Have lots of fun!
