DIY Paper Fans of Icy Arctic Animals
How are you all coping with the heat? It’s time for another fun summer crafts for kids. Making paper fans are easy and fun (Check out our previous ones here) and this time, while daydreaming about cooler climes, I’ve come up with this arctic animal theme.
Animals in the arctic are well camouflaged in snowy white color and very beautiful. The Polar bear, arctic fox and snowy owl are my top favorites and perfect for cooling you down in the hot weather.
Use the template from the link below and follow the assembly instructions from these summer paper fans. You can pre-score the lines with an empty ball-point pen to make folding easy for small children. I get asked often where to buy the dolly pegs I use in peg dolls craft and these fans. If you can’t find them in local craft stores, they are easy to find on amazon or ebay – like these for example.
They can also be used as hand-held masks if you cut holes in the eyes.
It’s worth looking up for some photos of these animals with kids on pinterest while making these crafts, they are absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t take my eyes off them and this project took ages to finish because I spent ages just looking at them!
Hence there’s also a baby polar bear fan template. ^ ^
