10 Craft Ideas to do with Panda Coloring Pages
Here are 10 free, fun, and creative craft activities that you can do with the above coloring pages!
1. Give Your Panda a Home
One great way to use these Panda coloring pages is to create a home for them! Paste the coloring page onto a piece of poster board and then carefully cut it out.
Trace a tree or bush on a piece of cardboard and cover it with green or brown felt, ensuring it’s larger than the cutout of the panda.
Fasten the panda onto the tree or bush, and you’ve just created a cute craft that will last for a long time.
2. Create a Panda Mobile
Pandas are adorable creatures that are great for mobiles in a child’s room. Cut out the finished panda picture from six coloring pages and punch a hole in each one.
Use three 12-inch ruler-sized pieces of wood, and attach a panda picture to the end of each piece with colored string or yarn.
Use another piece of yarn to wrap around the cross-section of the wood and place a hook on the end to hang the mobile from the desired place.
3. Make an Envelope
Folding the panda coloring page into an envelope is a fun way to use the finished page. Lots of step instructions can be found, depending on the size and style of the envelope each child wants to make.
However, pick a simple, standard envelope for young children, as the others may be too tricky.
This craft can also be completed in reverse for a fun surprise, which puts the panda’s picture on the inside of the envelope!
4. Design a Card
For a fun birthday or holiday card, staple several pieces of construction paper together, or connect them with paper fasteners.
The panda coloring page can be the card’s “cover,” and each child can get creative regarding what they put inside.
For an extra fancy card, another coloring page can be used for the back cover, and the child can add a signature at the bottom.
5. Decorate a Jar
A wonderfully simplistic way to use a finished coloring sheet is to glue it onto a clear jar to make it fancy.
The jar can be used for anything the child wants, such as to save coins, catch fireflies, or store secret treasures the panda can “guard.”
The jar can also be a gift for mom or dad, or someone else in the child’s life. Paints can be used to add extra decorations to the plain areas of the coloring page.
6. Create Some Cute Magnets
For this great magnet craft, print multiple coloring pages in smaller sizes and color them all a bit differently. They don’t all have to be black and white!
Cut them out and paste them onto a cardboard backing with glue or other adhesive.
Buy appropriate size magnets and glue them to the back of each panda cut out, and you suddenly have some terrific refrigerator magnets.
7. Craft Your Own Coasters
For this craft, coloring pages should be printed in a medium size. Once colored, trace a large circle onto the back, making sure it’s large enough to include the picture of the panda in its entirety.
Trace the same size circle–or a square–on a piece of corkboard and carve it out. Place the cutout of the panda onto the corkboard.
Use clear craft plastic or even clear packing tape to “seal” the picture, and you have a cute and practical coaster.
8. Create a Puzzle
This quick and easy craft is a big hit with all kids, and it makes a great classroom project. Children can finish their coloring page and then use a pencil to create their own puzzle shapes.
Ten to 20 pieces should be used, depending on the children’s ages. The pieces should then be carefully cut out, after which they can be used as a puzzle.
To make the pieces sturdier, attach them to poster board or thin cardboard before cutting them out.
9. Frame Your Panda Coloring Page
Some people make framed art from coloring pages, and a panda coloring page is perfect for this craft.
This is because the black-and-white colors are striking, especially when framed by a bold color.
Choose a bright green frame and see how attractive the coloring page looks. Alternatively, you can make your own frame and decorate it with the panda’s favorite food, bamboo leaves!
10. Make a Panda Wall Planner
This craft is great for a classroom activity. Have each child color a panda page and use a blank paper to create a corresponding page on which to list classroom activities for that week.
When everyone has finished, organize and connect the pages with staples and hang the planner in the classroom.
Each child will get to see his or her coloring page featured on the weekly calendar.
