Katy No-Pocket Kangaroo Craft

The Katy No-Pocket Tape Dispenser Kangaroo is a simple and fun craft using a plastic tape dispenser and colored cardstock. Children of all ages will have fun putting this craft together and then hopping along with their new friend. This is a perfect craft for any teacher, librarian, or Sunday school teacher looking to remind children to celebrate our differences!

What you'll need:

  • 1 large piece of brown cardstock
  • 1 small piece of blue and tan cardstock
  • 1 plastic tape dispenser
  • Pencil
  • Black marker
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Wiggly eyes
How to make your Katy No-Pocket craft:
  • Take the tape dispenser and remove the roll of tape. Using a pencil, trace the tape dispenser two times onto the brown cardstock. Cut out the shapes traced. Glue one of the shapes on either side of the tape dispenser. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • On the piece of brown cardstock, draw a large shape resembling the number nine. Use the outline of the roll of tape to help you make the rounded part of the shape. This is the kangaroo’s legs. Cut out the shape and trace it again onto the brown cardstock. Cut out the shape so that you have two number nine shapes. Glue the shapes to the bottom of either side of the tape dispenser. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Cut out a five to six inch long tail for your kangaroo. Glue the tail to the back of the tape dispenser and fold the tail where it meets the table. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Cut out small, pointy ears for the kangaroo and glue them the tape dispenser. Allow the glue time to dry. (see photos)
  • Glue the wiggly eyes to the top of the tape dispenser and let dry. (see photos)
  • Cut out a small piece of blue paper to cover the front of the tape dispenser. Glue to the front of the tape dispenser as the apron. Cut out a small oval and two small ears from the tan cardstock. Glue the two small ears to the top of the oval face for the baby kangaroo. Glue the face to the front of the tape dispenser, at the top of the pouch. (see photos)
  • Use a black marker to draw eyes and a nose on the joey. Use the black marker to draw a smile on the large kangaroo. (see photos)
  • Once your kangaroo is dry, hop around the house with your new friend or place Katy on your desk!
