Safari Exploring

The extraordinary safari adventure is all about searching and finding cool new things. For example, a monkey in a palm tree that we can make ourselves! Join Aero in also creating personalized binoculars to help you see more in our epic adventures this week. Let’s get exploring! 

Craft Part 1: Monkey in a palm tree 

Materials: 

  • Paper towel roll (or toilet paper roll) 
  • Construction paper (green and brown recommended)
  • Scissors 
  • Glue 
  • Clear tape 
  • Pencil crayons or markers 

Instructions: 

  • Using the green construction paper, draw leaves to be added to the palm tree. Make them all different shapes and sizes that you would like. Decorate the leaves how you would like. 
  • Cut out the leaves and glue them into the center of the paper towel roll. Bend the individual leaf different ways to stick up like a palm tree. Add more leaves if needed. Reinforce with clear tape inside the middle of the paper towel roll. 
  • Using another sheet of paper, draw your own monkey. Make sure that the arms and legs are really long to wrap around the tree. Decorate your monkey. 
  • Cut out the monkey and glue it around the paper towel roll/palm tree. 

Craft Part 2: Safari Binoculars 

Materials:

  • Construction paper 
  • Glue 
  • Scissors

Instructions: 

  • Lay the piece of construction paper horizontally and cut it in half. 
  • Roll the construction paper into a tube-shape and glue the ends shut. Repeat this step for the other piece of the construction paper. Reinforce with tape at the ends if needed. 
  • Cut out two thin strips of construction paper, put glue on one of the strips, and wrap it around so both the top and bottom so that the binoculars are connected together.
