G is for giraffe! I haven’t mentioned it before, but I hope you know that it is A-ok to use empty paper towel rolls too. I’m all about using what you’ve got on hand. You can cut a single roll into 2 toilet paper rolls. For the giraffe you will want a paper towel roll for her long neck! Here are the other toilet paper roll kid crafts in the series so far:
Here’s what you’ll need to make the giraffe kids craft:
- 1 empty paper towel roll
- Single hole punch
- Sharpie marker
- White scrap paper
The easiest way to cut the giraffe out of the paper towel roll is to smush it together a little bit, and start at the giraffes shoulders cutting through the roll.
Now, it’s time to add a few fun giraffe details: spots, nose, mouth, ears, and outline the giraffe. I also made hooves and cut them out for the 3D effect.
And a few fun giraffe fun facts:
- A new born giraffe is about 6 feet tall at birth
- Giraffes have 4 stomaches, the extra stomaches help with digestion.
- Giraffes are the tallest mammals, elephants are the second tallest.
