Easy Paper Animal Craft Ideas For Kids
Cute Rabbit Paper Cup Craft
- Paper cup
- Pink & white construction paper
- Colour pencils or crayons
- Black marker
Take a paper cup, we gonna add head, hand and some decorations on that. Fold the pink construction paper into a square shape and draw a half heart. Now cut that folded paper, if you unfold the paper you will get the perfect heart shape and repeat the process 3 more times. Cut the long strip of pink paper with a smooth curve and edge to get the earpiece as shown in the above image. In the white construction paper draw & cut the circle shape thrice with the help of a bangle or jar lid or compass or any round object. With a black marker draw 2 eyeballs and some lines above as eyelashes, to make it more realistic and glitter draw 2 white dots on that or leave that white space and colour the other eye area with a black colour pencil or crayon. Draw your mouth and colour it with red and 2 red shades on the cheek side too. Draw an earpiece in white paper bigger than the pink colour earpiece and glue that pink in the white piece to make it adorable. Finally, stick the ear with the head and pink heart paper in the circle piece to make a hand. Stick the hand through a pink stick with the cup and glue the other 3 hearts on the cup.
This is an easy and cute rabbit paper cup DIY with inexpensive things. School kids can do this and this is a simple home décor idea for kids.
Easy Snail Paper Craft For Kids
- Colourful construction paper
- Black marker
Cut a circle shape in construction paper of any colour (here we have used orange and rose) and draw a swirl. This reminds me of the golden ratio, if you haven’t heard about this golden ratio then do a search and get to know about math fun facts. In this way learn and see things around you as math, science etc., Now in another colour of construction paper cut a semi-circle as the body of the snail. Make a strip in the same colour as the body and bend it in the shape of V. At the edge paste the eyes by cutting white and black paper in circles of different sizes. At last stick all those as given in the above image. Ta-Da! we are done with the easy snail paper craft.
This is also one of the simple and easiest animal crafts without spending much money. All you need to do is buy colourful construction paper.
Origami Paper Frog Craft
- Green construction paper
- Googly eyes(optional)
- Yellow construction paper(optional)
This animal craft doesn’t need colour pencils, glittery items or anything. You just need paper, only paper. Initially try this on any rough paper like newspaper or useless paper to get accustomed to it. With different styles of folding and unfolding the paper, you can create this creature. It’s just not the paper frog which you can showcase to your friends, we can make this jump like the real frogs. If you wanna make some more things like googly eyes and yellow legs as shown in the image then do that. The instruction for folding the papers won’t be clear if I give them here. Always watching the demo video will give a better understanding to make the craft. So if you wish to make this frog then do watch this video. Prank your friends with this weapon. I was freaked out when my niece pranked me because I don’t like frogs and I’ll panic about frogs.
Pikachu Paper Craft For Kids
- Yellow origami paper
- Black, white and red markers
Pikachu is famous and everybody can recognize this. In fact, I do not know anything about Pikachu, Pokémon but I’ve seen this fictional character image. May all kids are fans of Pokémon and if your kid is one among them then ask them to try this origami Pokémon, it would be fun and interesting. Try to make different versions of Pokémon in origami papers.
Easy Paper Butterfly Origami Craft
- Origami colourful papers
This looks awesome! Everybody loves butterflies, especially kids. Does your kid know the initial stage of a butterfly? Its initial stage won’t be attractive, it’s a caterpillar but the process of changing into an adorable colourful butterfly is surprising. Likely paper is not an attractive one but we are gonna make it attractive, but how? With the combo of colourful origami papers and the magic of our fingers, we are gonna create an alluring butterfly now.
Yellow Bear Girly Paper Craft
- Colour origami papers
- Blue (any colour) construction paper
- Black marker
As you can see it is easy for kids to make teddy faces with less effort. Just cut the yellow paper in a round shape. You can either draw eyes and mouth or use paper to fix that. Cut the 2 round shapes on black paper with the help of coins and 2 pieces of white paper in very small sizes to fix inside the black paper to make the cute eyes. If you wanna draw, make the circle and shade it evenly. Draw nose and mouth on white paper and glue that in yellow face piece. Now two oval-shaped rose colour pieces to show cuteness. And then the ear with two colours, one is the colour used in cheeks and the other is the face colour which is yellow. So far we haven’t touched the part of origami work, now we are gonna work on that. In origami paper just fold layer by layer and slightly unfold now, you may get the bouncy shape. Repeat the process for how many petals of this background flower you need. Once done, join all the petals and glue them and in the centre part fix the teddy face. You can leave it at this stage or can man the stick with the cardboard by wrapping it in blue colour. You can use a pencil instead of this cardboard, this won’t make weight and you can enjoy your artwork while using a pencil.
