Make a paper plate Cassowary from the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland, Australia.
This is a fun and easy craft for kids and would make a great addition to a unit on Australian Animals, Rainforests, Endangered animals or Birds.
The Cassowary stands at around 2m tall and hides in the Rainforests of Australia and New Guinea, eating mainly rainforest fruits. They are shy birds which are rare to see in the wild, but you can make one of your own with this printable craft template plus a "side plate sized" paper plate (17cm/7'). Card stock is recommended for the head and legs.
Optionally, cut some large leaves out of green construction paper to complete your rainforest look. These might add to the display when you pin them up.
The template has two versions: an at home set which is best for creating one cassowary and a classroom set which is best when crafting with a group of kids or if you want to make more than one cassowary.
This is a printable pdf file and includes:
• Printable template in both A4 size with Aus/UK english spelling, and US letter size with US English spelling
• Printable photographs and step-by-step instructions on how to make the craft
• Both an "At Home" template (best for making one cassowary) and a "Classroom Set" (best for making more than one cassowary)
