10 Craft Ideas To Do With Madagascar Coloring Pages

Madagascar coloring pages offer limitless possibilities for crafts.

Try these top ten if your youngster is looking for some interesting and unique things to make.

1. A Funny Lemur Crown

Lemur, with its long striped tail, is a favorite with lots of children, and it’s the perfect coloring page for making this funny crown.

Cut a piece of cardboard into a headband and staple it together so the child can wear it.

When the adorable animal is colored and cut out, it should be wrapped around the cardboard and glued fast.

Reinforce the tail with a pipe cleaner so that it sticks straight up, on the side, or in the back, depending on the youngster’s preference. This funny crown can be worn anywhere.

2. Make a Colorful Madagascar Poster

The key to this craft is making it as colorful as possible. On a plain, white piece of poster board, have the child draw a background.

It should feature as many different objects as desired, including fences, roads, and cottages.

Then, have the youngster cut out numerous characters from the finished coloring pages and glue them to different areas of the poster.

The result is artwork that’s 100% unique, colorful, and imaginative! 

3. Giraffe Ring Toss

Choose that famous giraffe from Madagascar for this hilarious craft, and laminate it to thick cardboard when it’s finished.

Attach a long craft stick to the back of the cutout and position it in a small square of styrofoam.

Next, have the youngsters make homemade craft rings from pipe cleaners and see how many they can get to land around the giraffe’s neck!

4. Easy Decorative Centerpiece

Begin this great craft by laminating an empty coffee can with green construction paper.

When three to four Madagascar characters are colored and cut out, they should be glued around the circumference of the can as if they’re holding hands.

Fill the can with green tissue paper, making sure to pull some tuffs out over the top, and put a large cutout inside as if he’s popping out of the circle!

5. Madagascar Monkeys Steal the Show

This easy and engaging craft begins with an empty bathroom tissue roll, on which a tree bark pattern is drawn with a black magic marker.

Have the child cut a fringe at the top, bending the fringes down as if they’re tree branches. 

Add a few tufts of green tissue paper at the top, and the cardboard will quickly resemble a tree.

When the youngster cuts out monkeys from the coloring pages and glues them to the various branches, it becomes a one-of-a-kind pencil holder.

6. Colorful Party Hats

This craft is terrific for a group of youngsters, especially during a birthday party or other celebration.

Each child can fashion a simple, traditionally shaped party hat from a finished coloring page, adding elastic strings so it can be worn.

A craft pom-pom can be added at the top, and the children can add wiggle eyes to the characters on the hat. The eyes will shake hilariously whenever they move their heads!

7. Finger Paint Fun

If your child has colored the famous Madagascar hippo and lion, this duo can be made extra fun with fingerprints.

For the lion, the child should use brown and yellow finger paint to embellish his mane, using his or her ring finger.

For the hippo, gray finger paint should be used, and the child should use thumbprints to give the hippo a big, funny belly.

When you look closely, you can see the youngster’s fingerprints, making this a perfect keepsake for years to come.

8. Melman Hosts the Party

Children can work in groups to make this fun artwork, or each child can make one individually.

Use that famous giraffe, Melman, as the centerpiece, and glue him to the middle of a piece of poster board.

Next, as the other characters are cut out, they should be glued to his neck, as if they are sitting there.

The end result is a hilarious poster in which it appears that all the different animals are holding social hour on Melman’s neck!

9. Darts With a Twist

This craft is perfect for a classroom, and all you need is a large piece of poster board and the coloring pages.

When each youngster has colored and cut out the desired character, they should be glued onto the poster board in a random pattern.

Glue the poster to a corkboard or another supportive substance, and the youngsters can use it as a dartboard.

The challenge is to see if they can hit the character they name.

10. Penguins in a Row

Everyone loves the Madagascar penguins, and this comical craft is easy for any child.

Using empty bathroom tissue cardboards, laminate them with Penguin cutouts from the finished pages. They’re the perfect shape for the penguins’ fat little bodies.

Add orange pom-poms for feet, a piece of orange pipe cleaner for a nose, and some wiggle eyes.

These can be glued in a circle, the way penguins actually stand sometimes, for a hilarious decoration for any table or desk.
