10 Craft Ideas to do With Hamster Coloring Pages
Hamsters are a favorite pet of youngsters the world over.
If your child likes to color these cute creatures, here are some fun, affordable, and easy crafts to do with all those finished pages.
1. Hamster Finger Puppet Game
For this fun, easy craft game, choose a hamster page that shows the critter’s teeth. Paste the finished coloring page to thin cardboard and cut it out, adding two finger holes at the bottom.
Cut around the hamster’s teeth so that “buck teeth” appear. Next, gather up some tiny stones, aquarium sand, or even small foil balls.
Scatter them on a tabletop or floor, and have the youngsters see how many they can collect using the hamster’s “teeth.”
2. Make a Comical Welcome Sign
This simple craft begins with an ordinary paper plate, the back of which should be sprayed brown with craft paint or colored with finger paints.
Use a coloring page featuring a big, funny hamster face, and when finished, cut it out and glue it to the back of the paper plate.
Have the youngsters draw two giant ears to attach to the plate’s back and write the words “Did Someone Ring?” across the ears with a marker or puffy paint.
Big, silly wiggle eyes will complete this hilarious welcome sign.
3. Create a Funny Nut Container
Start this inventive craft by coloring a hamster that is standing up with its paws in front, and cut out the finished character, making sure to cut around the edges of its paws.
Using an ordinary nut tin, laminate it with colored construction paper, then glue it on the hamster cutout.
Make sure the head sticks up over the rim, leaving a bit of space for the lid to be replaced.
Tape one half of an empty nutshell underneath the hamster’s “paws,” and write the word “Nuts” on the lid in puffy paint for an adorable nut container.
4. Decorate a Real Hamster Cage
If your youngster has a real pet hamster, cutouts from hamster coloring pages can be used to make it bright and fun.
The child can create a scene and select pages to depict what he or she has in mind.
Invisible glue or krazy glue can be used to attach the cutouts to the sides of the cage, and a coat or two of acrylic spray seals in the work.
The child can also use embellishments such as pom-poms, wiggle eyes, or glitter to make it extra fancy.
5. Design a Hilarious Hamster Crown
This craft is simple, but your child will love it! From a piece of thin cardboard, fashion a band in the correct size for the child’s head.
When the youngster has finished coloring a cute hamster, it should be cut out and glued to the cardboard band’s center.
The rest of the band can be decorated with pom-poms, pieces of tissue paper, or even empty nutshells for an adorable hamster crown.
6. Hamster in a Wheel
Everyone knows that hamsters love running on wheels.
A simple wheel can be fashioned from poster board by cutting it into a strip and taping the ends.
The hamster should be colored, glued to thin cardboard, and cut out, leaving a one-inch square of extra cardboard at the bottom.
Use the extra paper tab to glue the cutout to the inside of the “wheel,” and watch this cute craft stand alone!
7. Hungry Hamster
For this innovative craft, have the youngster draw a piece of fruit and cut a hole somewhere in the artwork.
Next, when the hamster is colored and cut out, it should be placed over the hole, and candy corn or tic tacs should be used to embellish its teeth.
The idea is to make it look like the hamster is chewing its way through the food!
The entire ensemble can be glued to colorful construction paper and displayed anywhere.
8. Puffy Head Hamsters
This hilarious craft is easy for all children and makes a fun classroom activity.
Have the youngsters color and cut out their hamsters, embellishing them with pipe cleaner whiskers, wiggle eyes, and pink felt ears.
The heads should be separated from the bodies, and the bodies enlarged by gluing them to construction paper backgrounds cut in the same shape, only bigger.
Several cotton balls should be glued to the bodies before pasting the heads back on, and these adorable hamsters are now in 3D!
9. Personalized Hamster Art
Give the youngsters bright pieces of construction paper in their favorite colors, and have them trace and cut out their first initials.
Once their hamsters are colored, they should be cut out and glued somewhere on the initial.
Small pieces taken from an ordinary sponge can be used to depict the cheese that all hamsters love.
One piece of “cheese” should be glued to each initial, and wiggle eyes should be added to the hamster cutouts as if they’re gazing hungrily at the cheese!
10. Homemade Hamster House
This adorable craft starts with an empty bathroom tissue cardboard and popsicle sticks.
Place the cardboard on its side and glue the sticks in a crescent shape over half the roll to look like a little thatched roof.
Next, glue the bottom of the roll to a piece of cardboard bent in an arc.
Once the hamster is colored and cut out, he can be slid into the cardboard tunnel with his head poking out to look like he’s sitting in his own little hut.
