Sloth Paper Craft

sloth craftContributed by Leanne Guenther

This sloth is a simple cut and paste paper craft that is fun for children to make.

Sloths are one of my favorite animals.  They're slow moving, funny-looking little fellows who are just as likely to be hanging upside down as standing right side up. 

One of the most interesting things about sloths is that they are "homes".  Because they're so slow (nobody falls off), they make great moving apartment buildings for lots of other creatures including beetles, cockroaches, moths and fungus.  Very cool (but this does mean that no matter how cute they are, I don't really want to hug a sloth -- ick)
