Winter Animals Paper Chain Craft Tutorial
- construction paper
- markers: black, orange, red
- googly eyes
- glue stick
- tape; optional
First, cut three strips from construction paper that are about 2″x 8.5″ in the colors black, orange and white. They should all be the same length.
How To Make The Paper Roll Polar Bear
Take the white paper strip and glue googly eyes in the middle. Use a black marker to draw on a nose and mouth.
To create the polar bear’s ears, cut two circles and then cut the bottom so it has one flat edge. Use tape to attach the ears above the googly eyes so they stick up from the paper.
Create a loop with the finished polar bear paper strip. Secure with tape.
How To Make The Rolled Paper Penguin
To create the penguin, you will need the black paper strip. Cut a white piece of construction paper into a rectangle, slightly smaller than the width of the black strip. Make the top of the rectangle resemble a heart shape. Glue this piece in the middle of the strip.
Next, glue on googly eyes and then use an orange marker to draw a beak and feet.
Cut wings from black construction paper, then glue one on each side.
Make a loop with the finished penguin paper strip and secure with tape.
How To Make The Rolled Paper Fox
Use the orange paper strip to create a fox. Cut a heart shape from white construction paper and glue it to center of the strip.
Add the googly eyes and use a black marker to draw a triangular nose at the bottom of the white heart shape.
Cut two triangles from the orange paper to create the fox ears. Add a small piece of tape to the back of the ears and attach it to the strip so it sticks up.
Finish by creating a loop with the paper fox strip.
Cut two more strips of white construction paper. These will be used to attach all the Winter animals together, creating a paper chain.
Thread one of the paper strip between the fox and polar bear. Use tape to secure it into a loop.
Repeat with the penguin and fox.
