Llama Llama Crafts
The more llamas, the better! We even made llama cookies the other day that are super cute (and delicious!)!
This printable llama craft is great for a unit study on llamas, if you’re reading any of the Llama Llama books by Anna Dewdney, or if you’ll be taking a trip to the farm.
The best part of this craft is that it lets kids be completely and totally creative. They can color their llamas any color they want and use the various faces, accessories, and legs to make their llama truly one of a kind!
What to Do With Your Llama Craft
Not sure how you can justify your students making a llama craft even though they’re so darn cute? No worries! Here are some suggestions:
- Write a biography about your llama (this will be different for each child because the llamas will be so different).
- Make a graph tracking how many llamas are different colors, used certain pieces, etc.
- Studying the letter L? A llama craft is a great reason to make a Letter L craft!
- Use the llamas to decorate your bulletin board or classroom
Build Your Own Llama Craft
When you’re building your own llama craft, you’ll need the two page PDF printable with the pieces. We recommend printing it out on cardstock because it stands up better to the glue on the accessory pieces.
You can use paint (tempera or watercolor) to paint the pieces, or crayons, markers, or colored pencils.
Feel free to add glitter and sparkles to the pieces as well!
We found that using a glue stick worked best, but you could always use regular school glue too.
Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to make your llama! Each one will be unique and different – just like each of your children and students!
