You will need:

  • Green Card and Blue Card
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Colouring pens

How to make it…

  1. Draw a 1 inch border around the green piece of card.
  2. With the card landscape, draw zig-zag grass along the bottom border.
  3. Cut out the middle of the green card including the grass blades so you just have the border left.
  4. Draw a jungle background on the blue sheet of card. Our background has trees, vines and flowers.
  5. Colour in your background.
  6. Put a dab of glue in each corner of the blue sheet of card.
  7. Stick the cut-out green border on top of the blue sheet of card and press down firmly.
  8. Print out either the black and white template for colouring or the ready-colour Jungle Animal template.
  9. Colour the animals if necessary and cut out the jungle animals.
  10. Tape popsicle sticks to the back of the jungle animals.
  11. Place the animals in the picture and slot the popsicle sticks between the card.

Step by step photos



  • When you’re happy with where your animals will go, glue down around the popsicle sticks so that they stay under the card easier.
  • You won’t be able to fit all the animals in the picture but you can swap them in and out.
  • If your animal is going to be to the side or to the top, attach the popsicle stick so that it points to the side or to the top.
