Tips for Making a Tiger Surprise Craft


What Paper should I use?

Cardstock is my preferred choice for this craft. Kids will love opening and shutting their tiger and the durability of the cardstock allows it to last longer than regular copy/printer paper would.  

Can I cut out the tiger from the template?

Of course! You can cut out the tiger from the template so the tiger’s face and body are the only remaining template pieces and you can use the head to open and close the ROAR filled mouth.

Can my kids use finger paint to color in their tiger!

Absolutely! If you have extra time, having your kids finger paint the tiger is a great way to strengthen their fine motor skills and have a little extra fun! You can also use watercolor or crayons instead for a different outcome.
