5 to 10s
Cardboard Tube Jungle Critters
Make up some jungle animals - a lion, a leopard, an elephant and a tiger with a few simple supplies you already have at home.
: 40 minutes
2 cardboard tubes
A4 paper and / or card
String or yarn
Basecoat cardboard tubes and cut them in half as shown in the photo.
Paint tubes in main colours for the animal bodies
Paint animal bodies in their main colours.
While you're waiting for the paint to dry, print out the downloads.
Glue the animal pieces to cardboard, then cut them out (or just print on card).
Animal markings applied with black marker
Draw on the animal markings with a black marker for the leopard and tiger. The leopard markings are like the letter 'C' and the tiger just needs a few stripes.
String for the tail
Roll a few lengths of string for the tail and knot at one end.
Attach tail to hind piece
Make a hole in the hind piece, thread string through and knot so it stays in place.
Jungle Critters from the back
Glue the cardboard tubes to the animal front and backs.
Completed Jungle Critters
Enjoy your jungle critters.
