Tigers are beautiful, large jungle cats that make a great theme for children's crafts. Children can learn about this interesting, brightly coloured animal as they create paper tiger crafts, such as face masks and hand puppets. In addition to the crafts, you can take children to a zoo to see real tigers or show them a documentary on the big cats in their natural habitats.
Making a tiger face mask is an easy paper craft for children. Provide paper plates or cut-out circles of lightweight cardboard, orange and black paint, scissors, glue, construction paper and Popsicle sticks. Have children paint the paper plates orange with black stripes before cutting out holes for the eyes and gluing on pieces of construction paper to represent the ears, nose and mouth. Young children may need assistance with using scissors. The children can then glue a Popsicle stick to the bottom of the paper plate.
Tiger Coloring Pages
Tiger colouring pages are simple crafts suitable for young children. While many jungle and cat-themed colouring books are available at children's stores, you can also print tiger colouring pages from a variety of online sources. Provide children with a selection of images to choose from as well as crayons, coloured pencils or paint to fill them in. Kids will also enjoy jazzing up these pictures with craft supplies such as tissue paper, glitter and felt.
Tiger Paper Bag Puppet
A tiger paper bag puppet is an easy craft for kids. Provide each child with a brown paper lunch bag and set out art supplies such as orange and black paint, construction paper, scissors, crayons and glue. The children can paint the paper bags orange and black and add construction paper cut-outs to represent the legs, tail, ears, face and teeth. The face should be glued onto the side of the paper bag with the flap; this flap will move when the kids put their hands inside the bag.
Tiger Toilet Paper Roll
This craft requires cut-out paper tiger heads, tails and legs. While older children can cut out the shapes themselves, younger children will benefit from having the cut-outs ready for them. Provide each child with an empty toilet paper roll and have them paint it orange with black stripes. While the rolls are drying, hand out the paper cut-outs and let them draw the tiger's face and add orange and black stripes with crayons. Glue the body parts to the toilet paper roll so that the tiger sits facing forward.
