Primary TechniquePaper Crafts


Materials List

  • Colored paper
  • Sharpie
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  1. Select 2 or 3 different shades of brown-colored craft papers. Trace the head, lower body pattern, tail and upper legs (or arms) on a medium shade of brown paper, trace the belly and lower legs on a light shade of brown paper, and trace the inner ears on pink and the nose on black paper. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.

  2. Attach the inner ear cutouts on the ear parts of the head cutout and attach the belly cutout on the lower body cutout.

  3. Attach the eyes and nose on the head pattern. Use a sharpie to draw the mouth line of the papercraft kangaroo.

  4. Attach the lower leg cutouts on the backside of the lower body pattern, near the bottom side.

  5. Attach the head pattern on the top side of the lower body pattern.

  6. Attach the arm or upper leg cutouts on both sides of the lower body pattern’s top side. Apply glue only along the border and keep the rest of the arm cutout free from glue so that we can slide a paper or sheet under it to use it as a bookmark.

  7. Attach the tail cutout on either side of the kangaroo pattern, on the backside of the lower body pattern.

  8. Slide the arm parts of the papercraft kangaroo through a page to use the kangaroo as a bookmark.
