Each flamingo masterpiece will be personalized with the kids’ own names. Letters of their name are printed on puddles of water where they’ll use their letter recognition skills to put in order to spell their name.
They’ll also work on fine motor skills and scissor skills as they cut and paste the parts of the craft together.
The editable template makes it easy to print out each kid’s unique name, so it’s spelled just the way they do! Once you’ve got the template, grab the supplies and the kids to flock together and make this colorful craft this summer.
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Flamingo template (enter your email in the form at the end of this post to get the template)
Download the flamingo template, edit it to add your child’s name, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Begin by gluing the eye just to the right of the eyelashes.
Take the beak and glue it to the end of the flamingo’s head.
Next, take the flamingo’s wing and glue it to the top of the flamingo’s body.
Position the flamingo’s body just above the legs and glue it in place.
Finish up by gluing the water letters underneath the flamingo to spell the child’s name.
