Rhino paper crafts can make kids smile on a rainy day or can be used during a rhino unit in school. Some of these crafts require more steps, while others can be created in a short amount of time. Basic craft skills and a little imagination are the main skills needed to create these rhino paper crafts.

Rhino Paper Mask

Create a rhino paper mask out of grey paper plates. First cut each paper plate in half to create two masks. Next, cut two large eyes for the mask wearer to see out of. Cut two ears out of grey construction paper and glue them to the sides of the mask. Lastly, cut a large horn out of grey paper and glue the horn to the top of the mask, right in the middle of the eyes. Attach a piece of elastic to the sides of the mask so it can be worn around the head of the mask wearer.

Decorated Rhino Horn

Get children thinking about their personalities by asking them how they would decorate their horn if they were a rhino. Give children a picture of a rhino with a large blank horn. Allow the kids to use coloured pencils, crayons and markers to draw designs on the horn. Also, allow the kids to glue on other items like sequins, feathers and buttons to their horn to represent their individual personalities. Display the horns around the classroom.

Paper Rhino Diorama

Create a rhino diorama with students for a school project by decorating a shoebox to look like the landscape of a rhino's native home. Black rhinos typically live in dense wooded areas while white rhinos live in savannahs with watering holes. Next, work with the students to cut out small rhinos from grey paper. Make the rhinos stand up by folding over a flap of paper on the legs of each rhino and taping it to the diorama. Use the diorama to teach a lesson about rhinos and their habitats.

Toilet Paper Roll Rhino

DLTK's Growing Together website has a template for a rhino craft created from a toilet paper roll. Print the template out and colour the body, face, hands and feet of the rhino grey. Attach the body parts to the toilet paper roll, according to the directions from the website. This craft even comes with a small paper trumpet that can be coloured in and attached to the hands of the rhino.
