‘Sherlock Gnomes’ Pop Art for Kids – sponsored by Paramount Pictures
Sherlock Gnomes will be hitting the theatres on March 23rd and we couldn’t be more excited! After a string of garden gnome disappearances in London, Gnomeo & Juliet look to legendary detective Sherlock Gnomes to solve the case of their missing friends and family.
Sherlock Gnomes is a fun loving, family-friendly film that’s filled with positive messages about teamwork. A great pick for families to see in theatre’s together.
To reflect the colourful and vibrant personalities of Gnomeo and Juliet, we’ve created a super cool character pop art concept for kids. With two handy templates provided, Arty Crafty Kids can recreate Gnomeo and Juliet; mixing and matching colours, patterns and textures to bring their favourite characters to life.
And the fun doesn’t stop there…
The templates give Arty Crafty Kids the creative flexibility to design their own costumes and create their own stories to go with their pop art creations!

Sherlock Gnomes Character Pop Art for Kids: Tutorial
Step 1: Download and print the character templates featuring Gnomeo & Juliet from the new
film, and gather a collection of bright and colourful paper.
Step 2: Add colour to the facial and arm elements of the template.
Using their favourite medium, challenge the Arty Crafty Kids to have a go at recreating the clay texture of a garden gnome.
What colours do they need and how can they make them?
How would they describe the texture of clay?
Are the colours even or slightly patchy?
Step 3: Cut out all the elements of the template.
Step 3: Select a piece of paper and trace around the template element.
Cut out the traced element.
This is a great exercise for developing fine motor and scissor skills!
Step 4: Once all the elements have been traced and cut, assemble the pieces to recreate the character.
Once the Arty Crafty Kids are happy with the positioning of the character, stick the elements to a piece of brightly coloured cardstock.
Step 5: Let’s play and have some fun, mixing and matching Gnomeo’s and Juliet’s clothes – What do the colour and pattern choices say about the character?
