Letter K Craft: Kangaroo Paper Craft for Kids
What you’ll need to make the K is for kangaroo paper craft for each child:
- 1 piece of brown paper
- Black marker
- Glue stick
- 1 googly eyes
- Pom poms
K is for Kangaroo Paper Craft Directions
- To make the body, draw a sort of beaker shape onto the paper. Draw two hand paws, two foot paws, a tail, a head with two ears, and a pouch. All parts of the kangaroo will fit on a single piece of paper. If you’re making this for a large group of kids, make one kangaroo template and then cut out about 5-6 pieces of paper at once. This will dramatically cut down on your prep time.
- Put all pieces in a bag for each kid. This will make things easier when craft time comes. As a variation, you can include four brads in each bag to make the kangaroo’s arms and legs move.
- Let the kids glue the parts of the kangaroo together except for the top of the pouch. Leave that open so the pom poms can fit inside.
- If you are using brads, attach a brad to each arm and leg instead of gluing it.
Talk about words that start with K when making this craft. You could also fill the mom’s pouch with pictures of things that start with K.
