10 Craft Ideas To Do With Wolf Coloring Pages

Wolves are fun and fascinating, and children love coloring them.

If those pages have piled up, try these affordable, unique crafts.

1. Realistic Wolf Poster

To make this unique poster, begin by having the youngster use finger paints to color the wolf instead of traditional markers or crayons.

Then, using the embellished end of a fancy toothpick, the youngster can make the “fur” look real by adding texture to the paint before it’s dry. 

Thick dots of black puffy paint make perfect eyes, and a piece of black felt is ideal as a nose. 

The youngsters can then make a “paw print” border around the page with the finger paints and glue the artwork to a poster board background to display anywhere.

2. A Funny Puppet

To make this simple but hilarious puppet, have the child choose a giant wolf face with big teeth. 

When the face is colored and cut out, the teeth should be embellished with the ends of Q-tips or even candy corns. Add big googly eyes; the funnier, the better.

Then, glue the face to a thick piece of cotton batting and glue the cotton batting to a fat craft stick.

When the youngster shakes the stick, the eyes will move, and it looks like the wolf is about to bite!

3. A Hilarious Party Hat

This craft begins with giving each child a plain party hat with a traditional peak. Using cutouts from the coloring pages, decorate the fronts of the hats like growling wolves. 

Extra big ears can be made with simple construction paper triangles, and red puffy paint can be used to make comical mouths.

When the children wear their hats, it looks like the wolves are about to eat them, which all the youngsters will find hilarious.

4. Howling at the Moon

This idea is great as a classroom activity. Give each child a piece of black construction paper and some white chalk on which to draw a moon. It doesn’t have to be fancy.

Then, when the wolf is colored and cut out, glue it to the moon’s center to depict the wolf howling at the planet’s glow.

White or silver glitter embellishes this poster beautifully, and the youngster has a keepsake work of art to display in the classroom or to take home to Mom and Dad.

5. Pin the Tail on the Wolf

For a new twist on an old game, have the youngsters color their favorite wolf and glue it to a large square of poster board.

The poster board should be hung against a safe backdrop that pinholes won’t harm.

Then, an oversized tail can be traced and cut out of construction paper in a matching color.

The youngsters can play the old “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” game, only with a wolf! 

6. Wolf Guards the Treats

A wolf coloring page can be used to turn an ordinary cookie jar into a funny gag.

When the page is finished, the youngster should cut the wolf out, with its head and paws separate from its body.

The body should be glued to the old cookie jar, with the paws on either side as if reaching upwards. Then, glue the wolf’s head to the underside of the cookie jar’s lid.

When removed, it looks like the wolf is guarding the cookies!

7. Make a Fuzzy Pencil Holder

To make this cute pencil holder, cut the wolf from the finished coloring page with the tail cut out separately. Then, glue the body to an empty bathroom tissue cardboard roll.

Attach the tail behind the roll with invisible glue so that it sticks out to the side.

Next, use tufts of cotton balls to embellish the wolf’s “fur,” gluing them here and there, up and down the roll. Silver glitter will make the fur extra fancy.

Add some wiggle eyes and a pink pom-pom nose, and use this cute decoration to store pencils.

8. Make a Mardi Gras Mask

To make this interesting decorative mask, cut out the wolf’s face from the finished coloring page and staple a strip of black ribbon to either side.

Then, decorate the face with sequins, pieces of confetti, curling ribbon, or any Mardi Gras-style embellishment.

Using a thin strip of cardboard, bend one end up approximately half an inch, add a dot of glue, and glue it to the cutout’s back side.

This allows you to prop it up and stretch out the black ribbons so you can display it just like decorative Mardi Gras masks are displayed.

9. Interesting Wolf Facts

This craft is perfect for a classroom and is educational as well as fun.

Have the youngsters separated into groups, and give each group a large sheet of craft paper. 

When they’ve finished their coloring pages, they should cut out their wolves and glue them to the craft paper in any pattern desired.

The children should then write one fact they know about wolves next to their cutout. Display these unique educational posters around the classroom!

10. Wolf in Jail

For this hilarious craft, have the youngsters start by coloring a scary wolf.

Cut him out and glue him to a cardstock background, attaching a piece of red felt to his teeth as if he’s just eaten Little Red Riding Hood.

Then, using gray pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, or even toothpicks, the children can fashion a “jail cell” around the naughty wolf.

“Dangerous Criminal” can be written underneath in puffy paint for a comical piece of artwork.
