Eagle Papercraft for Kids
I absolutely love how these eagles turned out! You can use googly eyes, like we did, or draw on your eyes with a marker. I plan on gluing magnets to the back of our finished eagles and using them as fridge magnets.
To recreate this papercraft you’ll need the free printable template found at the end of this post and a few simple supplies:
- Colored craft papers
- Googly eyes (optional)
After printing out your template, carefully cut out each piece.
Select yellow or orange paper for the beak and legs; at least 2 shades of brown colored craft papers for the wings and body; and use white paper for the head and tail of the eagle. Trace the beak and leg patterns on the yellow or orange papers; the head and tail patterns on the white paper, the body and larger wings on the same shade of brown colored paper and trace the smaller wings on a different shade of brown colored paper. Cut out the traced patterns.
Attach the small wings on the big wings by matching them along the curved sides, as shown above
Attach the wings on both sides of the body pattern; by overlapping half a cm only.
Attach the head pattern on the head part of the main body.
Attach the legs on the bottom side of the body and the beak on the head.
Attach the googly eyes to complete the eagle paper craft or use your marker to give eyes to your eagle.
Allow to dry and your Eagle is finished!
