kangaroo mother's day card

This project is intended for kids ages 6+.

Step 1

Click here to download and print the template; then cut out the patterns.

Step 2

For your mom kangaroo, trace the pocket, ears and nose onto felt; then cut out the shapes.

Step 3

For your baby kangaroo, trace just the ears onto felt and cut out the shapes.

Step 4

Trace the remaining patterns on to construction paper; then cut out the shapes.

Step 5

Next, fold a piece of paper in half to make your card.

Step 6

Cut construction paper to make your scene, such as a hill or grass, and glue to the front of your card.
TIP: Add dots with a marker to a background.

Step 7

Glue your mom kangaroo to your card, but not the baby kangaroo.

Step 8

Now, glue the felt ears to both your mom and baby kangaroos as well as their wiggle eyes. Glue your kangaroo mom’s felt nose in place and let dry.

Step 9

Run a line of glue on the bottom edge of the felt pocket and attach to the front of your mom kangaroo. Let dry.
TIP: Leaving the top open allows you to place the baby kangaroo inside the pocket.

Step 10

Use a marker to embellish your baby kangaroo’s nose and both kangaroo’s feet.

Step 11

Finally, place your baby kangaroo inside his/her mom’s pocket and write a note inside the card.
