Make this adorable V for Vulture Craft using our Printable Template that’s perfect for learning about scavengers, carnivore birds, endangered birds or the Letter V
We move on to our next A to Z Alphabet Animal Craft with the Letter V. This craft is from our eBook – A to Z Alphabet Animal Crafts for Kids.
Although vultures are really disgusting and gross in real life, in craft form, they are adorable. If you want to go through the alphabet using animals only, you almost have to use vultures as there aren’t as many animals that start with V!
V for Vulture Craft with Printable Template
This feathered friend is often depicted lurking in spooky trees, and certainly seems to have a bit of a dark reputation. Perhaps this is due to its less-than-beautiful looks. Or it could be the fact that the vulture seeks out the scent of rotting carcasses for its next meal.
Supplies needed to make this V for Vulture Craft:
- Printable Template
- Red & Yellow or Construction Paper or craft foam sheets
- Black Felt or Construction Paper or craft foam sheets
- White Felt or Construction Paper or craft foam sheets
- An old CD
- Glue Gun or Glue stick if using paper.
- Googly Eyes
Steps to make this V for Vulture Craft:
Print the Craft template on an A4 or Letter Sized paper. Cut out all the parts – the white body, the red head, the black wings and the yellow beak. Use these cutout templates as your reference points and trace onto Felt. We used a 2mm stiff felt to make this craft. Alternately, you could use construction paper or craft foam in similar colors.
Glue the body to the CD first. Then add the wings, head & then beak.
Glue the Nostrils and finally, Glue on Googly eyes and you are done.
