Most probably not, and I’m one of you! Now that I know about them, I’m wondering how I was ignorant of what are probably among the cutest creatures on earth!
Quokkas are marsupials found in Australia, and they have a ‘smiley’ face which gives them the moniker – the happiest animal of earth. Now I can’t think of a better title to have in the animal world, especially during these times!
So when you’re learning about Australian animals like kangaroos, koalas and quails, think about including the quokkas too. And if you need help learning about them, we’ve got your back – with a cute little quokka hug bookmark craft!

1. Download the printable quokka hug bookmark template and print it out. The template includes the quokka’s head, body, tail, feet, arms, hands, ears, cheeks and eyes.

3. Assemble the head of the quokka by sticking on the eyes, ears and cheeks.
4. Stick the hands to the ends of the arms.
