I always had a fascination with Kangaroos when I was little. My favorite, of course, was Roo from the Winnie the Pooh books but any kangaroo would do. I used to think about all the great things I could store with me in that giant pocket. I'd never have to leave any of my toys behind, because my pouch would basically be my toy box. I would have had a lot of fun making a kangaroo mask, strapping a pouch across my stomach and hopping all around the house. I'm sure whatever bag I used for the Kangaroo pouch craft would have been filled fast and would have started overflowing and spilling with every jump I took but it would have been a super time.
Kangaroos are also fun for drawings, because you can always find a solution for any problem in a comic strip if you can just reach into your pouch for whatever you might need. Have a bouncy fun time making your Kangaroo crafts.
First of all, print out this paper kangaroo template. Then color in the paper kangaroo with colored pencils, crayons, or markers. Then cut out the kangaroo. Then fold the kangaroo according to the directions on the template. Then paste the head and tails onto the body of the kangaroo.
With this paper folding craft, you will use a paper envelope instead of a sheet of paper. First of all, start by printing out the following Kangaroo Template. Either trace the kangaroo onto the folded edge of a paper envelope or cut it out and paste it onto the folded edge of an envelope. Cut the kangaroo out. Open it up and fold on the dotted lines so that the kangaroo will stand. You can pretend to make it hop or fold a smaller kangaroo to sit on the mommy's lap.
To make the above kangaroo mask, just print out our printable kangaroo mask template and follow the instructions included
