10 Craft Ideas To Do With Cheetah Coloring Pages

Cheetahs are exciting and colorful and are often a favorite animal amongst youngsters.

If your child has colored lots of cheetah pages, try these terrific crafts that are easy and affordable.

1. Cheetah Family Fun

If you’re looking for a simple craft for any age child, this one is perfect. Give each youngster an empty bathroom tissue cardboard and an empty paper towel cardboard.

The paper towel cardboard should be cut at a one-third, two-thirds ratio so that the rolls feature three different heights.

These can be laminated with cheetah coloring page cutouts to depict a father, mother, and baby cheetah.

They can be decorated accordingly, with pipe cleaners for whiskers, wiggle eyes, and puffy paint for funny mouths. Place these cute decorations on a desktop or bureau.

2. Classroom Cheetah Race

This terrific classroom craft is fun and interesting and begins with the youngsters drawing a giant racetrack on a large piece of craft paper.

They can add a racing flag made from felt and pipe cleaners if desired. 

When each youngster has colored a running cheetah, the artwork should be sealed in contact paper and cut out.

Invisible glue should be used to glue the cheetahs around the track for a funny cheetah race.

3. Cheetah Ring Game

This great craft-turned-game is fun for all ages and is surprisingly easy. The youngster should choose a page featuring a cheetah with a tail that’s more or less straight up.

When the cheetah is colored, it should be cut out, and the tail reinforced with a pipe cleaner on the back.

Then, glue the cheetah to a piece of posterboard, except for the tail, which should be pulled out a bit from the background. The pipe cleaner will keep it rigid.

The youngsters can then have fun tossing cardboard rings to see if they can land them around the cheetah’s tail!

4. Peering Through the Leaves

For this unique craft, have the youngsters trace and cut out simple leaves and set them aside.

Next, using coloring pages with full cheetah faces, the youngsters should use the leaves to create a circular border around the face.

The end result is a cheetah peering through the jungle at unsuspecting passersby. Frame this adorable artwork and display it anywhere.

5. Movable Cheetah

To make this easy craft, have the youngsters color cheetahs in running positions and cut them out with the legs separate from the body.

The cheetah should then be reassembled with paper fasteners so that the position of the legs can be changed.

The body of the cheetah should then be glued to a piece of posterboard, on which the youngster has colored a jungle background.

The children can have fun changing the position of their cheetah’s legs to make it appear as if the big cat is running through the jungle.

6. Cheetah Stands Tall

This fun craft requires only some clothespins, cardboard, and the cheetah coloring pages.

When the cheetah is colored, it should be glued to thin cardboard and cut out, with the legs separate from the body.

Glue the legs to ordinary wooden clothespins with invisible glue or wood glue and clip the clothespins onto the body.

The cheetah now stands on its own as a terrific ornament for a desktop or end table.

7. In the Zoo

This easy craft is ideal for any age child. When the youngsters have colored their cheetahs, the pages should be left intact and sealed in contact paper.

Next, the youngsters should use black pipe cleaners or cut thin strips from black construction paper to create a cage.

Glue it strategically over the surface of the coloring page to make it appear as if it’s a cage in a zoo.

For extra fun, the youngster can name the cheetah and write the name at the bottom in bright, puffy paint.

8. Unique Framed Art

This craft is simple and begins with a yellow or orange piece of construction paper. 

The child should use a black marker to create a cheetah-style border, which will be surprisingly easy.

Then, when the cheetah is colored, it should be cut out and glued to a layer of cotton batting.

Glue this to the center of the homemade cheetah “frame” for a unique piece of art to place in a larger frame and display anywhere.

9. Make a Cheetah Balloon

You need a light touch for this interesting craft, but it’s super fun.

Give the youngster an orange or yellow balloon to be carefully decorated cheetah-style with a black marker.

Then, gently glue the cheetah cutout from the finished coloring page to the balloon’s surface. The child can use more than one cutout if desired.

Add black pom-poms at the top of the balloon for ears, and tie a yellow curling ribbon around the balloon’s base.

10. Cheetahs in the Jungle

To make this terrific classroom poster, have each child color one cheetah and make several large jungle leaves from green construction paper.

The cheetahs and the leaves should then be glued to a giant piece of posterboard, with some of the cheetahs concealed behind the leaves and some in the front.

The leaves should be attached with paper fasteners so that they can be moved to reveal the “hiding” cheetahs.

Display this adorable poster anywhere in the classroom!
