This blog is all about fun giraffe craft ideas. We’ve got a free download of a giraffe paper bag puppet for the kids to make. Another quick craft is to download the free giraffe coloring page from a previous giraffe blog. After coloring the giraffe, cut it out and paste it to a craft stick to make a stick puppet!
Here are just a few of our favorite giraffe craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do. We also have a paper bag puppet template to download, color, cut out and paste to a paper bag. It was specifically designed to use only one sheet of paper so that it is cost effective for groups of kids.
Kids Activities has complete instructions on how to make this adorable clothespin giraffe.
There isn’t much instruction on how to make this cute idea of how to make a giraffe using simple items like paper and a little bit of paint. But I like the simplicity and cuteness that HomeschoolAEC created.
Here’s another clothespin craft. I really like the accordion neck. Artists Helping Children has instructions and download template. Plus there is a bunch of other craft ideas.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some giraffe puppets. Use our free giraffe 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.
Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions? We’ve got the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Giraffe Puppet Sewing 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. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials. In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the giraffe puppet right now!
What our customers are saying:
“I love her patterns. Pattern well written and easy to follow.”
“I love how the puppet turned out. Please keep the patterns coming!”
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next giraffe blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature giraffes that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download to make a giraffe hand puppet out of felt. 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.
