Supplies Needed[]


  • Tan craft foam, cut into a circle
  • Brown, yellow, green and red craft foam, cut into strips
  • White craft glue
  • Blue and white bottoms for the onions


  1. To make the taco, glue brown foam strips to the circle. Be sure they are hanging over the edge so they will be sticking out when you fold the taco.
  2. Repeat Step 1 with each color until you've worked your way around the circle. Fold the circle in half as you go to make sure it looks right. Use green for lettuce, yellow for cheese, and red for tomato salsa.
  3. Fold the circle in half and glue in place to hold it closed.
  4. For the tostada, smear the circle with white craft glue. Cover with brown foam strips.
  5. Dot white glue on top of the brown strips and add a layer of yellow and orange foam strips for the look of cheese.
  6. Dot white glue on top of the "cheese" and add the "lettuce" by gluing on green strips.
  7. Black bottoms as black olives and white Botton as onions to glue onto their taco
  8. Lastly, cut a few red strips into squares and glue the "tomatoes" on top.
