You ever look at a leopard and wonder how many spots a leopard has? I haven't ever wondered that, any time I've looked at a leopard I think, I sure hope he doesn't eat me.
Well, I would think that every leopard has a different number of spots, but if you make your own leopard craft then you can decide how many spots to put on it. Plus you get the super added bonus of not getting eaten by a kids leopard craft so they are a lot safer to play with than a real leopard. You also don't need to feed a paper leopard so you can save quite a bit on groceries this way too
Here is a simple to make craft for kids...just print out the following leopard mask template. The printable has directions included.
If you want to make these leopards, then you will need to find an empty spool. You will need to lay it on its side. Wrap the sides of the spool with yellowish or orangish felt or crafts foam. Trace the circle part of the spool onto yellow or orange felt or crafts foam. Draw black dots all over the body (or you can cut out little circles and paste them on). Cut out 2 white felt / foam circles and paste them onto the center of the face. Attach 2 googly eyes to the face. You will need to cut out a few shapes from orange yellow crafts foam or felt. The first are triangle shaped ears. The 2nd shape are paws, and you will need 4 of them. The paws are like #3 shapes but with an extra hump. The 3rd shape is an S-shaped tail. Then attach these shapes to the leopard, as seen in illustration #3 above. Cut out a black triangle for the nose and draw on the mouth.
Leopard Craft Activity for Youngsters - - I saw this awesome post using foam and a rolling pin on Dollar Store Crafts ages ago. I filed it away under things to do. When my son suggested we make a Leopard for “art project time”, it popped back into my head! We had so much fun, and found some great books at the library to go along with the theme!
