Paper Flamingo

Yesterday, we continued on with our animal fun and made this cute little flamingo. This craft is super easy, fairly mess free, and doesn’t take long.


Materials Needed

  • Pink Construction Paper
  • Blue Construction Paper
  • Black Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Marker or Crayon



The prep work for this is super easy. Out of the pink paper we cut out a long rectangle for the leg, a curvy neck/head, a circle for the body, an a rounded triangle  for the wing. We went ahead and added a dot on the head for an eye, but if your child is older, they can do that themselves. A googly eye could also be fun! We used the black paper to cut out a little triangle to use as the flamingo’s beak.

Once everything was cut out, we sat our little one down to assemble her flamingo. The older your child is, the more you can just let them create. We only handed her one piece at a time.




Here is the finished flamingo. Our little one loved making it.
