I’ve had koalas on the brain ever since we had family movie night last weekend and watched the new movie SING. What better way to get it out of my system than with a fun craft, right?! And since we are such a huge fan of using newspaper for crafting, we used it to create this darling newspaper koala craft. Using newspaper as a recycled element in this craft makes it a perfect craft to celebrate Earth Day next month!

1. Begin by cutting out the pieces you’ll need for your newspaper koala craft. From your newspaper you’ll need a larger circle for the koala face, two circles for the ears and a half circle for the body. You’ll also need to cut out a koala nose out of your black cardstock.
2. Glue your koala body onto your colored cardstock. Then glue on your koala face and ears. Finally, glue your black cardstock nose and wiggly eyes onto your newspaper koala craft.
3. To give your koala some extra texture, use a gray oil pastel to color in some of the space on your koala. You can use your fingers or a cotton ball to smear the gray out a bit after coloring your koala.
