Australia Unit Study: Sydney Harbor Bridge Craft

We are having such a wonderful time with our Australia unit! I find a good portion of my inspiration on Pinterest and my Instagram feed. I came across this activity from Danya Banya and decided to do it with my preschooler. It really is super easy, and turned out super cute! I loved walking across the Harbor Bridge when I visited Sydney six years ago, and this activity brought back good memories.


  • White paper plates (1)
  • White cups (2)
  • Black Sharpie
  • Scissors

Cut the paper plate in half.

With the sharpie, draw lines to resemble the bridges’ metal design. Below is a photo I took in 2012 for some inspiration…

My kiddo did her best, but she’s still getting better at her hand control when it comes to art. Of course I wanted to join in this activity. It was too much fun!

Next step is to cut notches into the sides so they can fit into the cups.

Then cut a small notch in the cups:

You’ll then fit the paper plate into the notches on the cups to create your bridge!

Lastly we drew little windows on the front to complete the look.

I LOVE how it turned out! Not too bad for a three-year-old!

Here are both of ours. 🙂
