We love making crafts together and, crafts that double as learning activities are twice as nice!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Cardstock
  • Glue
  • Pom Poms
  • Paper Fasteners
  • Textured Cardboard
  • Single Hole Paper Punch

Create it!

Step 1: Paint cardboard yellow and allow to dry.

Step 2: Cut a long rectangle portion into several similar sized segments.

Step 3: Using a single hole punch , make holes on top and bottom of segments.

Step 4: Connect the segments with paper fasteners.

Step 5: Using a rectangle for the head, cut corners to shape.

Step 6: Cut ears and horns from yellow painted cardboard.

Step 7: From cardstock, cut an eye and glue to giraffe head.

Step 8: Glue ears and horns to giraffe head. Attach head with paper fastener.

Step 9: Glue pom poms to the tops of the horns.

Step 10: Cut circles from textured cardboard (like we did) or cardstock.

Use the dots for counting, sorting, even simple multiplication or division while working within the neck segments!
