Cut out the pieces of the template and use them to trace onto yellow and orange paper. You can use whatever color paper you'd like though. No reason you can't have a funky giraffe!
Cut out the pieces you have traced.
Glue the mouth, inner ear pieces, horn and hair on the giraffe's head.
Take the pieces for the giraffe's legs and glue them on the bottom part of the giraffe.
Now it is time to add some spots to our giraffe friend. Glue the half circle pieces onto the giraffe's body to create spots. At this point, you can also give the giraffe some personality by drawing on a face with a thin black marker.
Now we need to give this giraffe a place to live. Cut out a 2 inch wide and 6 inch long piece of green craft paper.
Cut out and trace the grass template onto the green paper and glue it onto a piece of white paper.
Glue your giraffe to the white paper so it looks like it is just hanging out in the grass.
Feel free to make another giraffe so your little guy can have a friend!
