In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about the flamingo. We also had a free download of a flamingo coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share our favorite craft activities that we found on the web. There are so many out there it was hard to choose.
Flamingo DIY and printable by All Kids Are Gifted. Download the free printable, color with crayons, markers, paint or water colors, add straws and feathers for a cute flamingo.
Paper Plate Flamingo Craft for Kids from Make and Takes is a super easy craft using tissue paper and the ever popular paper plates.
Another fun Flamingo paper plate craft by My Very Educated Mother. The kids could use any type of coloring medium – crayons, markers, finger paint, water colors or whatever you’ve got on hand.
No list would be complete unless it had a flamingo made from your kid’s handprint. This easy craft is brought to you by AHC Arts and Crafts. They also have a bunch of other flamingo crafts for you to try.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some flamingo puppets. Use our free flamingo paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself! It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Flamingo Puppet Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores.
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature the flamingo that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a felt flamingo hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
