DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Anteater or Aardvark Paper Craft

anteater craftcontributed by Leanne Guenther

This anteater is a simple cut and paste paper craft that is fun for children to make.  You could get away with calling him an aardvark instead of an anteater if you need an aardvark craft -- they aren't the same animal, but look similar enough for crafting purposes.

Now, when you think of an anteater, most people think of the Giant Anteater.  Mine is more of a silky or tamandua anteater because his tail is thin.

The giant anteater has a tail like this: anteater craft

The Tamandua anteater, silky anteater and aardvark have tails more like this anteater craft.

Having said all that...  We're looking at a very cartoon-y paper craft so I wouldn't worry too much about it -- the kids can draw their own fluffy tail instead of using my thin and curly one if they prefer.
