Make a Paper Walrus with Us!

In this week's Creative Clubhouse Stories book, Lottie & Walter, Lottie is nervous to go in her local swimming pool until she meets a friend, Walter the walrus, who makes her brave. Today, we're making our paper walrus's so we can have our own Walter!
Creative Clubhouse KIDS

What You’ll Need

  • A Piece of Blue Paper
  • A Piece of White Paper
  • Two Pieces of Brown Paper
  • A Pipe Cleaner
  • 2 Popsicle Sticks
  • Crayons
  • Pencil
  • Craft Glue
  • Safety Scissors
  • Double Edge Tape

This project requires cutting a few times. If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup is helping you cut! 

 

What To Do

  1. On your white paper, draw a squiggly line, to make a hill like shape.
  2. Cut your hill out and glue it to your blue piece of paper.
  3. Draw one large circle, two medium triangles, and a half moon-like shape on your brown paper.
  4. Cut out all of your circles and half moon-like shape.
  5. Cut one of your medium circles in half – this will be your walrus’s legs!
  6. Cut your pipe cleaner into six pieces.
  7. Draw a nose on your half moon-like shape with a straight line underneath.
  8. Using your double edge tape, attach each of the six pieces of pipe cleaner to the line on both sides to make whiskers
  9. Flip the half moon-like shape over and attach a popsicle stick on each side.
    If you don’t have a pipe cleaner or popsicle sticks, no problem! You can use a straw, or just draw on the whiskers and teeth with your crayons!
  10. Now it’s time to build our walrus!
    – Glue your largest circle onto the paper, in the “snowy” hill
    – Glue the small circle to the top of the large one
    – Glue your half moon-like shape under the small circle to create his mouth area
    – Glue each of the half circles to both sides of the large circle with the curve of the circle facing in for your walrus’s legs
  11. In the small circle, draw two eyes

And now you have your walrus!
