10 Craft Ideas To Do With Hedgehog Coloring Pages

Hedgehogs are cute, interesting, and fun to color.

Here are some affordable and unique crafts to make with the finished pages.

1. A Fancy Hedgehog 

To make this fun craft, use a hedgehog coloring page where the creature is standing sideways.

When the child has colored the hedgehog, it should be cut out and set aside. 

Using a piece of construction paper in a complementary color, the youngster should make a simple fan by folding it up accordion-style.

The hedgehog cutout should be placed at the base of the fan and stapled fast. When it’s fanned out, it looks as if the hedgehog has a big fancy coat.

2. Make a Beautiful Autumn Ornament

To make this adorable fall ornament, let the youngster color his or her favorite hedgehog character and embellish it with all things autumn.

For instance, the hedgehog’s coat can be decorated with leaves cut from colorful construction paper.

A candy corn can be used for his nose, and empty nut shells make great feet.

This cute creation can be mounted on poster board for a homemade autumn door sign.

3. Smiling 3D Art

This craft is lots of fun as a classroom activity, and it’s easy to make. When the children have finished coloring their hedgehogs, give them orange and brown tissue paper.

Using small tufts, have them embellish the hedgehog’s coat to create lifelike “fur.”

Next, use two black buttons for funny eyes, a red pom-pom as a nose, and finish with a black pipe cleaner to make a big broad smile.

This cute 3-D artwork can be saved as a keepsake or put in a frame as a present for mom or dad.

4. Design a Hedgehog Wreath

To make this innovative craft, start by having the youngsters cut long strips of brown construction paper, folding them in half, and stapling them at the end.

These can be glued in a circular fashion to a piece of orange or yellow poster board.

Once the hedgehog is colored and cut out, he can be glued to the center of the circle on top of a layer of cotton balls to give the craft depth.

This cute creation can be displayed all year long. 

5. Make a Hedgehog Christmas Centerpiece

To make this fancy Christmas craft, have the youngster color and cut out a hedgehog in a Santa hat. 

The hat should be embellished with glitter, and a white pom-pom used for a tassel at the top.

Glue the coloring page around a long, cylinder-style glass, such as a column-style candle holder.

Hang mini candy canes all around the top for a one-of-a-kind Christmas centerpiece.

6. Hedgehog Helping Hand

For this engaging craft, give the youngsters brown finger paint and have them make fanned-out handprints on a white piece of poster board, with the thumbs on the inside.

When the hedgehog is colored and cut out, it should be placed in between the handprints.

This makes it appear like the hedgehog has an oversized fancy coat, and the youngster can decorate the background by coloring leaves, flowers, or even hearts.

This cute artwork is a perfect keepsake.

7. Hedgehog Comes To Life

If your youngster wants to make a hedgehog coloring page look surprisingly real, this craft is perfect.

Take an ordinary square of styrofoam and round the edges a bit. When the coloring page is finished, it should be carefully glued around the styrofoam.

From a separate coloring page, have the youngster color just the hedgehog’s face, and this can be glued to the front of the styrofoam.

Use fancy toothpicks to create the hedgehog’s bristly coat by sticking them through the page into the styrofoam in an organized pattern. Display this unique artwork anywhere.

8. Fun With Fringes

Start this adorable craft with a coloring page featuring a sideways hedgehog. When he is colored and cut out, the hedgehog’s body should be reinforced with thin cardboard.

Then, glue several pieces of construction paper to the back of the cutout. They should be trimmed down until even with the top of the cutout. The sides will be trimmed later.

Then, cut the layers of construction paper into thin strips. This creates a big, bushy hedgehog coat. Trim the extra construction paper from the sides, and you have a unique craft!

9. Make a Funny Soap Dish

For this craft, use an ordinary, inexpensive soap dish from a discount store.

When the youngster has finished coloring the hedgehog, it should be cut out and glued to the surface of the soapdish with craft glue.

Spray the artwork with several coats of acrylic spray, and it can be used just like a traditional soap dish!

10. Hedgehog Games

To turn a coloring page into a game, simply have the youngsters color and cut out their hedgehogs and make tiny slits in the body.

Using colorful construction paper, have them cut one-inch strips and write trivia questions on them, with the answers on the back.

When these are slid into the slits (with the answer side down), they create a big embellished coat for the hedgehog.

Now, the youngsters can use their coloring pages to play trivia!
