In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about skunks. We also had a free download of a skunk coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. We were kind of surprised at how few skunk craft activities there were for the younger set. We try to list crafts that are inexpensive and use materials most likely to be on hand. Here are the ones we thought were easy to do and fun.
This little footprint skunk is just adorable! We found this at The Pinterested Parent. The blog also has ideas of how to make animals from A-Z using kids’ footprints.
Sorting Sprinkles has this easy craft using construction paper, cotton balls and glue. Kids love to glue. In fact, sometimes it is hard to get them to stop.
This paper bag skunk from I Heart Crafty Things is so cute! It does entail black paint which might get a little tricky with preschoolers.
How about this cute heart skunk from Crafty Morning? This is a clever way to help kids with their shapes. Besides, it makes the cutest valentine.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some more skunk puppets. Use our free skunk 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 this one doesn’t involve black paint.
Check out our Pinterest Board for more skunk crafts.
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Skunk 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.
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND ANOTHER FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature the skunk that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a felt skunk 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.
