Moose Paper Craft
Contributed by Leanne Guenther
This moose is a simple cut and paste paper craft that is fun for
young children to make. It makes a great project for preschool and
kindergarten kids and works well for an animals, Canada or letter M theme.
- something to color with if using the B&W version,
- You can use brass tacks ("brads") instead of glue to attach the head or arms if you want them to be moveable.
- Print out the template of choice.
- Color (where appropriate).
- Cut out the template pieces -- parents can help cut out some of the more
difficult pieces like the hair while children work on the easier
pieces like the body and head.
- Glue the moose together in the following order:
- feet onto the bottom of the large oval
- one front and one back on the front of the body
- one front and one back behind the body
- Glue the antlers onto the head
- Glue the head onto the body
- Glue the ears onto the head
- Glue the hair onto the head
- Glue the tail onto the back of the body
- See picture above for further help
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
