How cute is this Paper Leopard Craft for Kids? Turn it into a wall hanging or a card for your loved one with a little message! Comes with a free template.
Learning about animals is interesting isn’t it? There’s so much you can learn about not just animals, but about how similar we are in many ways too! For instance, the cat family is a lot like an extended Indian family – there are many members, and even though they look different, they are bound through many similarities!
Here’s a fun game – how many members of the cat family can you write down in 30 seconds? I couldn’t go beyond 8, and imagine my surprise when I found that there are 37 species in the cat family! The most commonly known ones are lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, panthers, pumas and of course cats!
Yes, there’s a lot for us to learn about the cat family, let alone the animal world. As with anything, the best way to learn about something is to make crafts about it. And if you’re stuck at home with no access to a craft shop, no problem – we’ve got a super easy craft that needs nothing more than paper – a paper leopard craft for kids!

We can ‘t get over how cute this paper leopard craft is! If you think that this can easily be confused with a cheetah, here’s a quick fact – the spots on cheetahs are oval or round in shape, but in leopards, the spots are actually rosettes. When making this craft, do check out videos on leopards – the cubs are just too cute for words!
