Create your own Beaver Paper Crown for National Beaver Day. Print, cut & glue. Enjoy when studying beavers, for National Beaver Day or perhaps for Canada Day too. Free Printable PDF in full-color & another with an option to color in.
The beaver may be the national animal of Canada but the furry dam-building rodent can be found across the North American continent and Eurasia too. International Beaver Day, April 7th, aims to celebrate and raise awareness. As part of our World Animal study, I love every opportunity I get to interact with Miss P about the different species and the animal families they belong to. Any study can be a lot of Fun if there is a craft involved.
Beaver Paper Crown for National Beaver Day
- Masking or duct tape
- Tacky or white glue
- Oil Pastels or crayons in shades of brown, peach and black.
- Beaver Paper Crown Template (you can download the Beaver Paper Crown template here)
Follow the instructions mentioned on the printout. Using a scissor, cut along the outer edge of the beaver head and brown rectangle. Your kid might need help cutting around the ears. But a 5-year-old can easily manage to cut the whole template out. Cut the lower brown rectangle.
Using Glue stick or transparent duct tape, attach the other brown piece to form a circle. Alternately, you could just staple an elastic band so that it fits any child’s head. And your Beaver Paper Crown is ready for you to celebrate National Beaver Day
We also added an empty template that you can color in.
Print the page 2 of the PDF template. Using crayons, oil pastels or ever water colors, paint the template in shades of brown. A small color image is provided for reference.
We used chrome yellow, black & many shades of brown to fill in our template. Once you are satisfied with the color, again, cut it out and make a headband for the size of your child’s head. They will love showing off their colorful creations. Coloring improves a child’s fine motor skills and slightly older kids can practice their scissor cutting skills too.
Staying in India, we rarely get to see the animals that are typical of the northern hemisphere so we watched a documentary from Discovery Channel to learn about the beaver’s habitats and lifestyle.
