Pokemon Evolution DIY Kaleidoscope Paper Toy


My kids and I have really been enjoying making Pokemon DIYs recently and we rather love our DIY Paper Toys too. Bring the two together and you get these fantastic never ending Pokemon Evolution DIY kaleidoscope or kaleidocycles – basically, watch your favourite characters, Bulbasaur, Eevee, Charmander and Squirtle, as they evolve…..

This Pokemon Paper Toy was first published in September 2016

All crafts supplied on this website are free for you to follow and read. Occassionally, I charge for the odd template, but the templates are not necessary for crafting! During this super uncertain time of Covid, if would like to show me additional support, there are number of ways you can really help me (and help continue with this free resource website!!):

  1. Follow me on YouTube (I am soooo keen to hit that 1mill subs milestone!)
  2. Sign up to my FREE weekly newsletter
  3. For Preschoolers – follow my FREE FB Group or join this newsletter
  4. Or if you wish, you can buy me a coffee!

Any, or all of the above are super helpful!!


Pokemon Evolution Cards

We also have some AMAZING Pokemon Evolution cards – 6 different Pokemon Characters to choose from, one cuter than the next. And if you think the transformation in the kaleidoscopes is amazing, you will adore these Pokemon Cards too!

Pokemon Evolution DIY – Materials

  • a printer
  • paper
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • pens if you are colouring!

Grab your Pokemon of choice – remember you can get it “ready coloured” or to colour it in yourself (I highly recommend the Pokemon coloring pages, much more fun and satisfying!). These are all free! Just make sure you save this post and share it with all your Pokemon loving friends!!!

Pokemon Evolution DIY – How To

This is how to assemble your Kaleidocycle. Remember, the most important thing, is to make good creases and to wait for your glue to dry! And don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel (all free!).

What do you think? Aren’t they simply fabulous? I love both the Pokemon Coloring Pages version, and the “ready made” version if you have a little less time. Enjoy!!

Check out our WINTER Kaleidocycle set – you will find some adorable designs for both Christmas, Autumn and Winter in general!
