Paper roll panda craft

Sharing is caring!

Let’s grab a paper roll from the recycling bin or your craft room (in my house the paper rolls go directly to my craft room) and turn it into a paper roll panda craft. Pandas are cute animals and although they are big, they look so cuddly.

This paper roll panda family is a great addition to our collection of ZOO animals crafts. So far we have created paper roll zebras and giraffes but we plan on adding more in the following weeks. Because we made zebra and giraffe families, we made a panda family, too.

We gave each member of our panda family a bamboo shoot in its hands. And the little panda even has a leaf in its mouth. Doesn’t it look adorable?

I like a good recycled craft and with Earth Day just a few days away, this looks like a great craft idea for kids. It’s easy and it requires no special tools. It’s basically paper roll, paper, paint and a black marker.

Preschoolers can practice their scissors cutting skills and kindergartners should be able to make this craft with no help from an adult.
