Backstory:

Have you ever seen an animal in the wild? On an African safari, you can ride with the game rangers over the savannah to see wild animals up close! Game rangers are like animal police. They make sure that wild animals are safe and healthy. In this safari crafting activity, we will make a paper safari car, some game rangers and lots of wild animals.  Do you know the names of all the animals? Do you know where they all come from? We hope you have fun with these ranger crafts and remember to have a look at our other “Fun on the Farm” projects. Let your imagination run wild!

Materials:

  • Print out the attached documents
  • A cardboard cereal box

Tools:

  • A handy Pritt glue Stick
  • Scissors

 

 

Steps:

Step 1

First we cut out all the safari images from the printed-out crafting templates.

Step 2

Now we take the paper safari car cut-out (image 1)  and glue it to our breakfast box cardboard. We must wait 30 seconds for the glue to dry. Can you count to 30? Now we must cut around the paper safari car, so that we have a cardboard template.

Step 3

Once we have the template, we must fold along the dotted lines of the safari car outline.

Step 4

Place a generous amount of glue on the tabs along the sides of the safari car and glue them to the sides to form a car shape. Use the picture for help.

Step 5

To make the friendly adventures and the wild animals (image 2), fold the cut-out in half, and then fold the coloured blocks inward to form a triangular shape. Then apply some Pritt glue to glue the base in place.

 

 

Step 6

Now to make our savannah, we glue image 4 to the other large page with a small water hole. This will be the base for our safari.

Step 7

We now need to make the trees. We glue the trees (image 5) to the remainder of the breakfast box. We must wait 30 seconds for the glue to dry. Can you count to 30? Now we must cut around the paper trees, so that we have a cardboard template. Now we fold the template in half, and then fold the coloured blocks inward to form a triangular shape. Then apply some Pritt glue to glue the base in place.

Step 8

We decorate the savannah by gluing the grass (image 3) and our trees (image 5) into place. How will you decorate your savannah? You can use the picture for inspiration.

Step 9

It is now time to play! We hope you have lots of fun on safari!

And that's it!

 

We hope you have lots of fun with the animal safari crfting project.

We would love to see pictures of your safari animals. You can ask your mum or dad to post pictures on our Facebook wall at “Prittworld”.

Ask an adult to help with cutting out the cardboard if needed
