Have you ever gotten to see a moose up close? Down here in the South, we don’t have them. It’s just too hot. (Shucks, it’s too hot for me sometimes, so I don’t blame them.)
But they are lovely, regal animals, especially when they’re adults and they have a full set of antlers. Although the small ones with the fuzzy antlers are cute too. 🙂
Since we’ve been busy making coffee filter crafts for kids over the past couple of months, I thought a coffee filter moose craft would be a neat addition! Read on to see how we made this sweet sleepy moose!
Coffee Filter Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Moose Craft
You’ll need the following supplies: (Affiliate links are provided here for convenience. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
Start by flattening out the coffee filter with your hands. Sometimes it’s good to rest a book on it overnight to get it to lie a little flatter.
Color the entire filter brown with a brown crayon. Then glue it to a piece of construction paper. Try to place the filter in the center but toward the bottom. You need to leave room for the antlers on either side.
Use a black colored pencil to draw two closed eyes toward the top of the filter.
Now add a moose’s snout.
And a teeny smiling mouth. I know I’m happy when I take a nap!
On either side of the moose’s head, freehand draw a few antlers. If the kids are adding the antlers themselves, you can let them draw big letter “Y” shapes or use a fork to add antlers with brown paint.
Color in the antlers and you’re done!
Have a good nap, moosie!
